Replay helped the Giants… so did Buster Posey’s bat and Tim Lincecum’s arm. Kind of a 2010 callback.
The A’s and Red Sox had pretty f—ing good days too.
Time to update the Dodged Bullet – Teeth Grinder Tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
A’S DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
The A’s came very close to blowing a lead to the lowly Astros. But Sean Doolittle and Luke Gregerson saved the day and the game, 4-1. DODGED BULLET
9 Dodged Bullets 4 Teeth Grinders
GIANTS DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
Buster Posey homers, Tim Linecum throws well and the bullpen nearly blows it. It is a time warp to 2010. 4-3 win over the Padres.
8 Dodged Bullets 6 Teeth Grinders
TOTAL: + 2
RED SOX DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
The Red Sox were down 5-0 early. Then the Orioles reliable defense became a little league team and Boston staggered off with an ugly 6-5 win.
9 Dodged Bullets 8 Teeth Grinders
No such thing as ugly wins. Just wins and losses.
