So the Giants were winning with 2 outs and nobody on the 9th. Romo let up a single… ok. No harm. Then Brandon Barnes got a hit to centerfield, Angel Pagan misplayed it… and everyone kept running.
A 2 out, 2 run, come from behind, inside the park home run… the hell? Wait WHAT?
Pagan had a chance to atone for his play with a runner on in the bottom of the 9th, but he hit into a game ending double play. Not his best day.
That plus the Red Sox loss have me grinding my teeth to the gums.
Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.

The Red Sox wiggled out of trouble all day, but a sloppy 7th inning capped with a bases loaded walk put the Indians ahead for good, 3-2. TEETH GRINDER

You know it is a strange day of baseball when the best thing that happened all day was the lights going out in Oakland.
Another day, another way for the Giants to blow a late lead.
