4 - 5 plus 3 SB much more effective day than Renken's. On Bill James' Game Score chart, Renken garners a 65. Good, not great. Decent. For comparison's sake, there were five pitchers who put up those numbers or better yesterday in the major leagues. (Out of 60.) Hamilton's four hits would have tied for the most in the majors with Justin Upton and Jay Bruce. (Out of 270.) Add the three SBs, and Hamilton's game is clearly better.
