One reason baseball is the greatest game is the number of times you walk away saying, "Well, I never saw that before."
Sixth inning, 2-0 Tribe, bases loaded, nobody out. A-Rod at the plate. Bingo, a big inning. And so it was.
A-Rod: hit by pitch. Run forced in. 2-1, Cleveland.
Giambi to the plate. Slow bouncer to first, One unassisted, run scores, Jeter advances from second to third, A-Rod from first to second. 2-2.
Matsui to the plate. Slow bouncer to first, One unassisted, Jeter scores, A-Rod to third. 3-2, Yankees.
Morgan Ensberg to the plate. A swinging, thirty-foot six-hopper dies in the infield grass. Ensberg, infield hit. A-Rod scores. 4-2 Yankees.
Four batters, four runs--and all without a batted ball traveling more than 95 feet.
Never saw that before.
