The A’s blew a 4-0 lead in Miami? The Marlins erupted for a 5 run rally and looked like they were ready to climb back to .500?
No need to worry. The A’s bats, Cespedes’ arm and a little confusion on the base paths was all the doctor needed!
That and an overturned play at the plate and the A’s continue their march to 50 games.
The Giants sputtered and the Red Sox season might be done.
Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
GIANTS DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
Johnny Cueto shut down the Giants bats and Bumgarner had one awful inning, but that was enough as Cincinnati won 6-2. TEETH GRINDER
33 Dodged Bullets 24 Teeth Grinders
TOTAL: + 9
A’S DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
The A’s blew a 4-0 lead, but Coco Crisp’s slide into home was reviewed in the A’s favor and a 4 run 9th gave Oakland a 9-5 win in Miami. DODGED BULLER
29 Dodged Bullets 24 Teeth Grinders
RED SOX DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
Vidal Nuno suddenly became unhittable and the Red Sox failed to take advantage of some blown Yankee rallies in a 6-0 nightmare. TEETH GRINDER
26 Dodged Bullets 32 Teeth Grinders
Of note, I didn’t do an update after Thursday’s game, but I included the teeth grinding Giants loss that day in their tally.
