Still nervous about the bottom of the inning, I don't know the matchups but I think I would go with Hale.

This extra-inning win is so much more rewarding for the players than 3-1 win in 9. Chappy gets the win, too!

Yes, Jon. Bad karma. But this team’s good karma buries bad karma,

What was extra impressive about our EE's prediction above was that Sanchez was 4 for his last 38 and his last extra-base hit was June 21.

I mean, TB almost came back last night after getting crushed in the top of the inning, let's see.

I think Gary just seems to have a knack for piling on misery. Won't necessarily get you the go-ahead run, though he can sometimes. But he'll put an exclamation point on it after someone else does. He's kind of an asshole that way. But our asshole. :)

Or so it seems to me.

Edit: I'm probably wrong, but I feel like I've seen him do that at least twice.

Again, leadoff walks in the late innings kill you.

OK, let's see who is pitching. Chapman threw 29 pitches, no way they leave him in.

Cessa is pitching pretty well, they are fouling off some tough pitches and he got squeezed a few times. Come on Luis.

This is exactly what happened last night, BAL scored 6 in the top of the 9th to make it 9-3, TB scored 3 in the bottom of the inning and brought the tying run to the plate with 2 outs. BAL changed pitchers and got a strikeout.

Tonight NY scores 5 in the top of the 10 to make it 8-3, TB has scored 1 and has brough the tying run to the plate with 2 outs. NY is changing pitchers and...

That's why Hale should be on the team and Cessa should not be, heroic performance in London aside.

Awesome for Sanchez to pick himself up with that bomb after letting one through the five hole to tie the game just before.

When he came to bat in the 10th, Ken Singleton said he was 8 for 10 so far this season, and then he added "and 3 for his last 3!" as if that is somehow more impressive.

Wow, Chapman had never before allowed a run to TB, insane career stats coming in: 19.1 4 0 0 3 35.
