Just saw one of the most amazing things I have ever seen in Baseball. Alex Cora 2B for the Dodgers evened the count at 2-2 against Matt Clement of the Cubs. He then slapped around 13 straight foul balls and then went deep for a 2 run bomb. 18 total pitches is one at-bat and he ends it with a homer.
Yeah, that was totally crazy! It's always great to see a pitcher and hitter battle like that, especially when the hitter finally gets the pitch he's looking for and tallies a nice base knock. But to go 18 freakin' pitches, and finish up with a dinger... from a very light swinging second baseman no less... That was just a thing of beauty to watch. The crowd and Cora's teammates in the dugout were just going more and more nuts after every pitch. Baseball needs more moments like that. Not to mention my Dodgers went on to shutout the Cubbies 4-0. Still rollin' along!
Jorge Posada got hit by a double play relay throw in the face tonight and broke his nose.
Yeah... Uh, sorry 'bout that Matt!
Our bad. Then we went and rubbed it in with an 11-2 shelacking of the Yanks.
Now if we could just get Erstadt, Anderson, and Salmon back, this is really gonna be fun! I may finally get that Freeway Series that I've been dreaming of since I was about 5 years old...
See Clemens blow up again yesterday? Holy God, that guy's not human! What an incredible story he is this year.
