Even a blown call in the Red Sox favor couldn’t stop the A’s juggernaut.
Have the tying run score in the wake of a swing and miss mistakenly called a foul ball? Eject the manager? Send it into extra innings? Put Koji Uehara on the mound?
Did the A’s even sweat? Coco Crisp for the second game in as many days delivered the game winning hit and middle reliever Dan Otero hilariously earned his 6th win.
Watch him win 20 games.
And watch the Red Sox slide into futility.
Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
