Heading into the bottom of the ninth inning of tonight’s ALDS Game 3 with the Tampa Bay Rays tied with the Boston Red Sox, my sister and I had a conversation that went something like:
“Longoria’s up second.” “Just get a homerun and end it.”We had our hopes up for a walkoff homer. We did not expect that homer to come from Jose Lobaton. But it did. And it went into the Rays tank.
PETA, I volunteer to personally console any cownose ray who was in the tank tonight. You can see the splash in the crappy shot I managed to take of my TV during the game.
The Rays live to play #OneMoreGame.
