How to determine winning team from the MLB retrosheet "event" file?

Sports Asked by Vyassa Baratham on April 15, 2021

As far as I can tell, there isn’t a field in the event file ( that states the winning team. By my understanding it could either be found from the game file (, or calculated from runs scored, or by matching the winning pitcher (which IS in the event file) to his team. Am I missing an easier way to get the winning team from just the event file?

One Answer

No, there is no "winning" record in the event file. That is what the Game file is for. I don't think there's a better way using the event file than to match the winning pitcher (which is easy enough to do), but the truly best way is to use the correct file for the correct information.
