Of course. The three runs in the 8th were meaningless with the way they "hit" today.
In allocating blame, using the Fangraphs's WPA, 90+% they assign to the hitters and 10% to the pitchers (-.456 WPA v. -.044). The only players they say had a positive impact on our likelihood to win were Broderick, Morse, and Slaten. I guess they really like leadoff hits in the middle innings of 2 run games, and holding games close by shutting out opponents over multiple innings.
