WALK OFF WILD PITCH!!!! 

 

  • Shields had an amazingly good game but gets saddled with a no-decision because Ben Zobrist couldn't handle a groundball in the top of the 9th.   Final line:  8 IP,  6H, 1 ER, 12K, 1BB
  • Matt Joyce homered again.  Was the only run until the 9th.  (He scored the winning run after a leadoff double in the 10th)
  • Joel Pineiro had a good start coming off the DL, holding the Rays to 4 hits and a single run.
  • So many stupid mistakes.  Shoppach managed to get a double play from a non-swinging strike out and interference.  Zobrist botched a grounder that could have saved the Angels scoring a run in the 9th.  Farnsworth and Kotchman paired up for an awful pickoff attempt in the 9th as well.  
  • Sam Fuld took a foul ball to the head while batting in the bottom of the 9th and then proceeded to bunt 3 times in a row ending in a strikeout. 
  • All it took was Fernado Rodney throwing a bad pitch.
