Adam Beck’s umpire scorecard shows that the Los Angeles Angels were heavily favored in Saturday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
According to this scorecard, Adam Beck’s overall factor in this game was +1.62 runs for the Angels. His called strike accuracy of 86% was below MLB umpire average. To add insult to injury the top three most impactful calls all went against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Interestingly a called strike on a ball above the zone to Willy Adames in the sixth inning did not make the list for most impactful missed calls. This missed call came after Beck did not grant Adames time after an Angels pitcher started his delivery before Adames had engaged him. Eventually this resulted in an automatic strike to be issued as Adames pleaded his case and the pitch clock kept running. Craig Counsell and Willy Adames were ejected shortly after this sequence.
Overall this scorecard shows that Adam Beck had a rough game behind home plate on Saturday night. He was promoted to a full time MLB umpire prior to the 2023 season beginning, but he had 253 games worth of big league umpiring experience prior to his year.

I was at the game with my youngest son last night. I sit behind the Brewers dugout in the second tier two rows back. I have a very good look at the strike zone. Even to the naked eye without the metrics in the ballpark or MLB app, you could see from my vantage point how awful the strike zone was. What does the MLB even do with umpires like this? This seemed like a guy who was going to impose his will on the game whether he should or not.
