6 losses in row.
Last night, in the top of the 4th inning with Texas trailing Boston 5-4, Julio Borbon led off with a single. He stole second. Elvis Andrus sacrificed him to third and Michael Young hit a sacrifice fly to center. Only it wasn't a sacrifice fly because the home plate umpire B.L.E.W. the call.
Brian O'Nora said Borbon didn't touch the plate and called Borbon out even though Varitek dropped the ball. Well, he did touch the plate Brian. Bad Call! That would have tied the game at 5. As it was the Rangers went on to lose, yet again, in the bottom of the 12th inning. I'm beginning to think those of you who picked Wash as the first manager to get fired may be right. Sorry I don't have a better picture of the bad call, that was the best shot I could find.
Here's a couple more nice plays from last night.
Matt Wieters is going to win this battle with Chone Figgins.
You have to love that effort from rookie Ike Davis of the Mets. Oh, to be young again....and talented.
