BASEBALL WAS REALLY AWESOME TONIGHT

Admittedly, I missed most of the action tonight since I was in class. I was sort of half paying attention to the O’s-Yankees game on my phone, but I had no idea what happened in the exciting A’s-Tigers game until well after the fact.

Let’s recap. With the Orioles leading 2-1, future Hall of Famer Raul Ibanez came in to pinch hit for always clutch New York Hero A-Rod. This is what happened.

And in the 12th inning, Raul did it all over again. So much for that vaunted Baltimore bullpen.

Meanwhile in Oakland, things were shaping up to be much more exciting. Heading into the bottom of the 9th, the Tigers led 3-1 with Jose Valverde on the mound, so basically game/series/season over for the A’s. But not really, because Seth Smith hit a double with two men on, making it 3-3.

And then a couple batters later, Coco Crisp lined a single into rightfield to win the game and force a game 5.

And to make matters worse for the Tigers, the clubhouse attendants had to tear down the plastic tarp in their locker room.

What a night. I wish I could have sat on my ass the entire day and watched all four games! Or at least the two exciting ones.

The O’s and A’s win tomorrow so we’ll be one step closer to having every baseball nerd’s favorite ALCS.
