Baseball Lingo: "snakebite game"

Baseball lingo's my thing.  I love learning new terms and phrases to refer to different players, items and events inside the game.

Today, thanks to Bill James via Grantland, we learn...

"A snakebite game is a game in which the starting pitcher pitches well and does not allow an earned run, but is charged with the loss anyway."

What Shakespeare is to the English language, Bill James is to baseball language.
