Here's to the game going into extra innings and wearing out both bullpens.
Hell of a game. Sorry the Nats Lost. If this goes on I will not get any sleep. Go Yankees.
Four hours of nightmarish baseball for both side! Wow! That 5th inning was crazy!
The "dead ball" rule needs to be clarified for a third strike passed ball. Is the batter a batter or a runner at that point?
The umpire ruled that he was a runner and the ball was not dead. But the rules are not clear!!!
Go cubbies go!!
Now it is Dodgers vs Cubbies.
Justin Turner rocks!
The Dodgers have had only had two post-season walk-off homers in their entire history. First was Kirk Gibson's in 1988. Second is Justin Turners yesterday.
BOTH ON OCTOBER 15TH!!!!!
Just amazing.....watch the dude in the bleachers make a nifty catch. (He is a retired police Captain and returned the ball to Turner after the game).
BOO! I hope the cubbies can pull it off. The pitching choices haven’t been ideal.
Four out of five will be tough, but the Cubs did something similar last year down 3 games to 1 against Cleveland!
So did you think Madden should have pulled Lackey for Davis?
I personally think Lackey should never have pitched in the first place. Its hard for a starter to go in late. However, I didn’t see everything leading up to the switch as I had a test to study for.
I also found the previous decisions to pitch Edwards Jr. interesting as well. Madden seems to enjoy digging himself a hole.
It is difficult for Madden after a tough series with the Nats. I agree with your comments though. Madden used a 38 year old pitcher who gave up a LOT of jacks this year.
You sound pretty baseball knowledgeable for a HS junior.
Heck, you weren't even BORN in the 1988 World Series, when Gibson hit the epic jack off Dennis Eckersley.
Well, thats a rough way to end the season. I only watched a few minutes tonight... just enough to see the bases loaded and an LA run walked in.
In my defense, I was born just in time for the best part of cubs history! I’ve been a big cubs fan for a while. My uncle has tickets and takes my brothers and me to a game every summer.
I’m typing this in the bottom of the ninth. Hopefully I wake up to some good news.
