There were only a few games going on last night, but enough animal feed produced from the two would last as long as a box of Graham crackers in your pantry.
Let’s go through them one by one, right?
At first there was a rare drama in your sport, a burglary at home by Randy Aurozarena of Tampa Bay Red Sox 5-0 in Game 1 of ALDS. It’s often that you don’t get one of these – is a game more rare? – And Pull so clearly.
“I noticed that the call was not paying attention to me. I was able to take a big enough lead and take that base, ”Aurozana told reporters after the game. “This is the first time I’ve stolen a house.”
“He asked me all season, ‘Verde, Verde, Verde’ – green light, “ Race manager Kevin Cash said. “We finally gave it to him.”
This is the first straight theft of a postseason game since Jackie Robinson’s dish was stolen in the 1955 World Series. Yogi Berra is probably still complaining about that call to home plate umpire Bill Summers somewhere on The Balcony.
Aurozarena made history by homering at LDS last night, becoming the first player to do so Stealing at home and going to the yard in the same game.
Oh, what a night.
As the late Ron Poppel would say… .. “But wait, there’s more!” Before the unprecedented double dip of Orozarena, Nelson Cruz was also at home, but with some Tropicana Field jokes.
Yes, the explosion of the cruise hit one of those trope catwalks (C or D ring) and although the ball landed in the shallow center the ground rule was governed by the home run.
Here’s the rule:
The bat ball that hits the bottom two catwalks (known as ‘C-rings’ and ‘D-rings’), including any catwalks connected to any light or suspended objects, as well as any angled support rod that connects in the right area ‘C-Ring’ of Masters supporting ‘D-Ring’: Home Run.
And at 41, Cruz became Homer’s second-oldest player in the post-season. Only Julio Franco was 105 years old. Well, Franco was 43 years old.
Across the other side of the country, if you want, go to Chat Corner, Seattle, where this hate happened. Thursday night football (By the way those look away from Neon Eunice).
Now, that NFL official tweet says that if the kick is behind the line of the scrimmage, double-painting is legal, but Was This? The Seattle 21 line was Seattle. It seems pretty clear to me, at least to me, that Seahawks punter Michael Dixon was on top of 21 when he booted the ball into the Rams 11. F NFL effective, That it was not a legal pont.
But Dixon is an Australian Rules football player, and was not aware of the legality (although it should not have been) of what he did.
“I didn’t know the rules for double-kicking,” Dixon said. “I always thought if it gets blocked even behind the line of the scrimmage and I can’t move it, I’m going to do some Aussie rules and try to hit it, push it down the field and do what I can.
“It was always on my mind. And then I had the opportunity. And I did it. “
Q Popil. But wait, there’s more!
Also in this game, you had a bit of this animosity.
Wilson was unable to return to the game, which provided a rare thing in all sports: seeing a Zeno Smith. And if you don’t get a chance to see how Smith performs, you should. He looked good. And if you didn’t know he’s still in the league, you’re not alone.
All in all it was a memorable night, the seventh night of October.
