Wow! What a buzz kill!
With Cleveland rallying in the 9th, Grady gets picked off first base for the final out of the game! With Shoppach on second and Sizemore on first, Chris Gomez represented the go-ahead run.
Yeah, Gomez was already 0 for 4 in the game, but with a .303 average, it appeared that the Indians were about to find another rabbit to pull out of their hat...empty hat! The rabbit got gunned down at 1st!
Putting that game behind us, we are still tied with Boston for the best record in baseball, looking for home field advantage.
We have an opportunity to sharpen our offensive skills as we play a slumping Kansas City team for the final 3 games of the season.
Even though LeBron James doesn't think much of our Indians' chances vs. the Yankees, I like the underdog position everyone is putting us in. (LeBron is a self-admitted, life-long Yankee fan!)
We need to win all 3 games in K.C., own the best record in baseball, and then choose Wednesday, October 3rd as the start of our playoff season, giving us the best advantage for our pitching rotation in relationship with days off.
It starts all over again with the game tonight!
