Rays vs. Blue Jays GDT 4: Archer tonight

New, comments

Here are the details of last night's game, as reimagined by my subconscious.

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

The Rays did not lose 3-0 last night. According to my dream last night, they won 20-15 after 25 innings.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Ben Zobrist, batting right handed, hit a foul ball so hard it rolled along the edges of the stadium wall until a brave fan reached out his glove to snare the ball. The fan fell backwards.
  • The Rays, trailing 3-0 in the bottom of the ninth with two outs, managed to score 5 runs. Because the MLB apparently changed some rules this offseason, the Blue Jays were allowed a chance to score some more runs in the top of the 10th inning.
  • With the Blue Jays batting, the scored 2 runs, but the Rays scored another 5 runs in the bottom of the 10th. By rule, the next three innings were void.
  • Neither team scored again until the 25th inning, when the Blue Jays scored 8 runs.
  • With a depleted bench and in need of a pinch hitter for James Loney, I believe, manager Joe Maddon called me from first-base side of the stand and had me start warming up. Apparently, at this point, I was no longer watching the game at home.
  • Standing on deck and getting in some practice hacks, not really nervous but very interested, I watched as the Rays players rounded the bases and added run after run. All told, the Rays scored 10 more runs between the time I walked out on deck to the time I was supposed to back. The 20-15 score officially ended the game, and I woke up confused but ultimately happy with the result.

Here's the box score, that I actually dreamed, from the game:

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25
Jays 0 0 0 2 0 0 1 0 0 2 - - - - 0 0 0 - - 0 0 0 0 0 8
Rays 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 5 5 - - - - 0 0 0 - - 0 0 0 0 0 10
