About Box-Toppers’ team abbreviations
Chapman struck out three in a scoreless ninth inning, allowing no hits, no walks and earning the save, in the American League’s 4-3 win Tuesday over the National League.
Chapman had a Box-Toppers game score of +4.0, which was tied for the highest score among the players on the winning AL team with Indians pitcher Shane Bieber (1IP 0H 0R 0BB 3K ND), who pitched the fifth inning. Chapman won Player of the Game honors over Bieber because he earned the save while Bieber did not earn the win or save, picking up a no-decision.
Bieber, however, was named All-Star Game Most Valuable Player, perhaps because the All-Star Game was held in Cleveland, his home ballpark?
Chapman has 2.0 Box-Toppers points in 2019, 275th among all players, 71st among AL pitchers and 12th among AL closing pitchers. Chapman ranks second among all AL closers from 2014-2019 with 30.1 Box-Toppers points, behind only Ian Kennedy of the Royals (37.4), who had been a starting pitcher until serving as a closer this season.
Bieber has 12.1 Box-Toppers points in 2019, seventh among all players and fourth among AL pitchers. Bieber was not on the initial AL All-Star roster and until he was added as a late replacement, was deemed Box-Toppers’ most worthy but unchosen All-Star.
Joey Gallo of the Rangers had the highest Box-Toppers game score (+2.0) among AL batters (HR 1-1 R BI). Gallo has 6.0 Box-Toppers points in 2019, 49th among all players and fifth among AL batters.
Astros pitcher Justin Verlander, who leads all players in 2019 Box-Toppers points (14.8), started the game for the AL and had the third-highest Box-Toppers game score (+3.0) on the team (1IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K ND).
Brett Gardner of the Yankees, who leads AL batters with 7.0 Box-Toppers points, was not selected for the All-Star Game. Mike Trout of the Angels, who has the most 2019 Box-Toppers points of AL batters selected as All-Stars (6.7, ranked second), had a Box-Toppers game score Tuesday of -2.0 (0-2 0R 0BI).
Indians closing pitcher Brad Hand had the lowest Box-Toppers game score (-6.0) among all AL All-Stars (1IP 2H 2R 2BB K ND).
Pete Alonso of the Mets had the highest-ranked Box-Toppers game score (+1.0) among batters on the losing NL team (1-2 0R 2BI). Luis Castillo of the Reds had the highest-ranked Box-Toppers game score (+3.0) among NL pitchers (1IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K ND).
