So, a loss.
But didn't that 9th get your heart racing?
The double by Stewart on a full count, LaHair grounds him to third, Soto WALKS, a little luck for a change with the Aramis Ramirez error on Byrd's double play grounder, young Stevie Clevenger with the clutch 2-strike single off Brewer Stud Closer John Axford, DeJesus strikes out, Barney with the HUGE WALK to load the bases with Starlin Castro coming up.
Come ON, man, that was freaking amazing.
A single woulda tied it.
But Castro struck out lookin' at what he must have thought was a breaking ball, 'cause it was a fastball right down the middle.
But seriously, a whole lot better than the bullpen blowing a lead, right?
I wish I had a photo of Larry O'Brien that would have worked in the gif.
Larry is Ted Lilly's agent, and he's almost a dead ringer for the most interesting man in the world, only he's real and every bit as interesting.
Larry, if you're reading this, hi and Sutter says you still owe us a steak dinner.
