I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about baseball and scoring but am confused as to why Brandon Workman received the loss in Game 3 of the World Series and not Koji Uehara when the winning run that scored was the one that Uehara let on. Here is how the Bottom of the 9th played out:
Pitching: Brandon Workman
1. Matt Adams strikes out swinging (1 out).
2. Yadier Molina singles (runner at 1st)
Pitching Change: Koji Uehara replaces Brandon Workman
3. Allen Craig doubles (runners at 2nd and 3rd)
4. John Jay reaches on a fielder's choice, Yadier Molina out at home ( 2outs). Allen Craig scores on interference by third baseman Will Middlebrooks.
5. Game Over.
Maybe I am missing something very obvious but is not Allen Craig the responsibility of Koji Uehara? Should not he be the one who received the loss in the game? Anyone know why?
