Monday scoring change
A day after recording his first win of the season, Ricky Nolasco’s ERA jumped by a run-and-a-half, and he didn’t even throw a pitch.
An error originally charged to third baseman Emilio Bonifacio in the sixth inning on Monday was changed to a double for Ryan Zimmerman.
The play in question was a line drive by Zimmerman that glanced off the glove of Bonifacio, who was battling the sun. The ball went into the left-field corner for two bases.
Adam Dunn followed with a three-run homer. So the change has altered Nolasco’s line.
Initially, Nolasco was charged for four earned runs (five total) on six hits in six innings. Now, Nolasco’s line is five earned runs on seven hits. His ERA rises to 7.50, instead of 6.00.
