Pitch Count Possible Glitch?


Pitch Count Possible Glitch?

This is my first time seeing this, so I don't know if this is just commonly accepted in the sim or even if it usually works and just didn't happen this time.

Replay: https://www.pennantchase.com/lgRepl..
Box: https://www.pennantchase.com/lgBoxS..
Bottom 1:
On the first pitch of the game Mondesi singles. (Pitch count 1)
On the 1-0 Mondesi steals second.
On the 2-0 Mondesi caught stealing third.
On the 3-2 Cabrera makes an out, but the Pitch Count shows 5.
On the next 3-2 Smith makes an out, and when the pitcher returns in the 2nd the pitch count is at 11.

I wonder if the double steal causes something with the Pitch Count to glitch?

Re: Pitch Count Possible Glitch?

Mondesi saw 1 pitch, Cabrera saw 6, Smith saw 6, so PC should be 13. You’re right, looks like it didn’t count the pitches on the steal attempts.

Re: Re: Pitch Count Possible Glitch?

Was Mondesi Picked off? it says out stealing, if so, that's not a pitch, it's a throw over

Re: Pitch Count Possible Glitch?

Doesn’t matter. Point was Mondesi hit first pitch (0-0 count), Cabrera hit 6th (3-2 count), Smith hit 6th (3-2 count) and that should be 13. Since two pitches are missing, makes sense to think it’s when Mondesi stole 2nd and was thrown out stealing 3rd.

Re: Re: Pitch Count Possible Glitch?

Yup, missing those pitches

Re: Pitch Count Possible Glitch?

Thanks I am pretty sure I have caught the issue and fixed it - that was a serious brain teaser...

The next outcome was a strikeout, so the count jumps to 3-2 and those two extra strikes were not getting added after the stolen base attempt. Nice catch!
