We have the Most Interesting Ninth Innings in the World.
There can be 500 more double play balls hit and none of them will result in the freak ending that we had yesterday. Of course, it would have been nicer to not be in a position where we needed a double play to save the game in the 9th. Fans should get a free Tums whenever Frankie comes in; now there would be a good promotion.
Iglesias out after taking a knee to the jaw, Upton due to return Friday, JD probably next week.
Today’s Who Would Have Predicted This Lineup:
- Ian Kinsler, 2B
- Tyler Collins, RF
- Miguel Cabrera, DH
- Nick Castellanos, 3B
- Alex Avila, 1B
- James McCann, C
- Andrew Romine, LF
- Jacoby Jones, CF
- Dixon Machado, SS
Pitching: Daniel Norris vs Erasmo Ramirez
