The Summer Score – Updated for October 6, 2022

Ken Lambert – Seattle Times

The season is over… some teams are done until the spring. The playoff squads are hoping to extend summer well past the end of October. Seattle is going for the first time in a generation. Others, like the Cardinals, Dodgers, Yankees and Braves, are here often. And evidently 329 makes for a perfect Summer Score.

There are 4 points awarded for each day in a playoff position this September. Plus a point is given to any team who pulls within 1 game of a playoff spot.

The Braves, Cardinals, Dodgers, Mets, Padres and Philles all added to their Summer Score in the National League.

The Astros, Blue Jays, Guardians, Mariners, Rays and Yankees all added from the American League.

The Braves completed their comeback, clinched the Division and look poised to take a run at being the first NL team to win back to back World Series since the Big Red Machine of 1975 and 1976. The Mets came up just short. I doubt it is little consolation to Mets fans to know they had a perfect Summer Score.

There are 4 points awarded for each day in a playoff position this September. Plus a point is given to any team who pulls within 1 game of a playoff spot.

The Braves, Cardinals, Dodgers, Mets, Padres and Philles all added to their Summer Score in the National League.
