Standard Strike-Zone Game Score: +8
Adjusted Strike-Zone Game Score: +1


Porter has always had a liberal strike zone and that was clearly observable today with a Standard Game Score of +8 (seven called strikes were outside the standard strike-zone). He clearly favored the Dodgers with his calling, but as we have seen in the past it is not out of the ordinary for a zone to increase in a blowout game such as this.

Close Calls & Reviews:

Almost as if it were a joke, down by 8 runs Mattingly challenged a safe call at first in the top of the ninth after Guerrero took too much time getting the throw over on a Venable chopper. In his defense, I think it was the right call to challenge, and I think NY got it wrong. Again, this is a call that probably wasn't reversed because it was close enough to defend. Jeff Kellogg was the perpetrator of this bad call. Thankfully (and comically) this play had a LI of 0.01.
