Cortana baseball bugs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've noticed 2 bugs with Cortana reporting baseball scores that I wanted to bring to your attention. The first and most problematic is that when asking for score updates, it's very inconsistent which phrase will get Cortana to tell me the score. Most often (~50% of the time), asking "When is the next Oakland A's game?" will give me score reports, even if the game is in progress, which seems a little counterintuitive. This question will also occassionally tell me the next scheduled game by Cortana talking to me, and the rest of the time (~30%) result in a Bing search.

    The question that feels like it should have Cortana tell me the score "What is the score of the Oakland A's game?" nearly always just results in a Bing search.

    The second bug I've noticed is that when Cortana does tell me the scores, she refers to the innings as quarters rather than innings, eg, "The score is 4-3 in the 8th quarter." Which is more than a little odd.
