Dodgers Run Themselves To Death.....
A bizarre play, to say the least, took the LA Dodgers out of a potential huge early inning against the Mets. Kent and Drew started the second inning with consecutive singles. Russell Martin followed with a fly to right that would not be caught. But Kent had to pause to make sure the ball was not spearable while Drew just kept on going. Reminds me of a Bruce lyric that goes like this..."Like a river that don't know where it's flowing, I took a wrong turn and I just kept going." It was a two person express train approaching third base coach Rich Donnelly. He waved Kent in, but there was no stopping Drew. Bang bang at the plate, a rare double play that even surprised the Met's catcher Lo Duca. And the Dodger's succeeded in possibly running themselves out of this 3 of 5 game series as the Mets won 6-5. Nomar was the final out as Billy Wagner made it interesting in the ninth.
In the other game, the A's took their second straight from the Twins, and return to the Bay area with a commanding lead. And last but unfortunately NOT least, the Yankees game with the Tigers was rained out, to be played today, at 1PM. Just a little more than 4 hours from now. Go Tigers...there's a Moose waiting to slay you.
Red Sox news? There isn't any. Nor will there be until after the World Series concludes. But then the action will be fast and furious. Theo has his work cut out for him. If he were a player he'd be a leading contender for the comeback player of the year award. Such is the hole he has dug. If anyone can do it........well, we'll see. Everyone, TAKE CARE!
