He may not have been charged with the runs, but he had a hand in earning them.
Don't really agree. If someone like Votto were at the plate, we'd be talking about what a great AB it was, battling back like that, getting a two out hit.
I guess it boils down to point of view. Is is the pitcher's fault or the skill of the batter?
