Never turn off an Oakland A’s game!!

The A’s were losing in the 9th, the Giants were losing and the Red Sox had already lost.

It seemed like a good time to stop following baseball, take my kids for a walk and talk to them about Star Wars.

And while I was discussing the Rebellion and trying to avoid talking about Clones and Yoda with a freaking Light Saber, the A’s went on a rampage.

A 6 spot was put up in the 9th with Cespedes tying the game, Moss untying it and Donaldson giving the insurance.

A rotten night of baseball was redeemed. Maybe I spend more time with my kids. It is helping the A’s reduce their magic number.

Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.

An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
