Jason Bartlett's Costly Error Dooms Rays

There were two outs in the top of the 11th inning.  A ground ball was hit right at Jason Bartlett, whom I praised just yesterday.  Of course Bartlett can't field it cleanly and is charged with an error.  Matt Holliday is up next and effectively ends the Rays night when he launches a hanging pitch from Joe Nelson into the left field seats.  A beautiful start from James Shields is wasted.  Notice the blue dot here.  Not good.



To quote Bull Durham ""It's a simple game. You see the ball, you hit the ball, you catch the ball....Got it??!!"(h/t Jason Collette)  Tonight the Rays seemingly did none of those things when it mattered.  *sigh*
