Glove Story: Mariners 3, Angels 2 (10 Innings)

The natural impulse is to bitch about Scot Shields' throwing away the game in the tenth, and it's a fair cop as far as it goes. Shields -.274 WPA certainly caught Fangraphs' attention:

But shortly behind all that was the team stranding 11 baserunners, and above all of them Mike Napoli with a -.267 WPA, mostly for hitting into an inning-ending, two-out force out in the tenth. Howie Kendrick stranded five base runners, and you can't let the other team off the hook like that.

Yesterday's game reminded me of this one:
That's the fourth or fifth time this short season that the Angels got zilch outa the bases loaded (that I'm aware about).
