Our faith was rewarded by Good AJ today, who delivered one of his best performances: 8 innings of 1 run ball.
Bryan Bullington did AJ one better in search of his first major league win, after starting his career 0-7: only 3 baserunners in 8 innings of shut out ball, while getting a huge double play and a caught stealing on GGBG.
Not much to say about this one. Tip your cap and get on the plane. There's a game tomorrow: the Tigers will be in the Bronx at 7.
Play of the Game: What an odd game. The top 9 plays were all defensive plays; the biggest being Pena's GIDP against AJ in the 2nd, which pulled the Royals' odds of winning back down by 8.9%. The tenth most impactful play was Billy Butler's RBI single in the first.
Comment of the Game: Three winners today; long time listener, pastor2B and pkyankeefan put together an all too true thread about making this game Joe-West-Approved. Sure enough, the game came in at 2:07. Unfortunately, the rest of their prediction didn't come to fruition.
