Game 25 Unfair Win Shares

Bud Black once again left his best reliever in the pen while a lesser pitcher lost the game for him. But Bell will be fresh and ready to go for the save today after Gaudin outpitches Billingsley.

Troncoso was the pitching hero, and the only Dodger pitcher to make the unfair win shares podium. Wolf was good but not for long enough, and the mess he left tells against him ( though he nearly snuck onto the podium thanks to his set-up of the first Dodger run ). Wade was good, but life's unfair sometimes, and Mota was lucky.

The Dodger offensive heroes are somewhat obvious. The Padre goats are also obvious, especially Kouzmanoff.

After Gaudin outpitches Billingsley...

I don't think so, but if it does happen it may not be such a bad thing:
Geer outpitches McDonald = Dodgers win
Peavy outpitches Kershaw = Dodgers win
Young outpitches Wolf = Dodgers win

After checking, Young at least outlasted Wolf (and so outpitched as I saw it).

Yeah, it was always unlikely that Gaudin would outpitch Billingsley, but it was a lot closer than I thought it would be around the fifth inning or so.
