This may have been the best baseball game I ever saw.
It was supposed to be a low scoring, pitcher’s duel, but neither Big Game James Shields or John Lester were on their game. Or maybe it was just time for both of those offenses to break out.
Lester pitched into the eight but in the end he was charge with six earned runs.
I thought the Royals were done at 7-3.
I thought the Royals were done at 8-7.
When the A’s scored in the top of the 12th I thought that was it. I figured the Royals had squandered too many chances to win it. I was wrong. They just kept scratching out runs.
I’m interested to see the Royals – Angels series.
