A’s: Brandon Inge gets game-winning hit after dislocating his shoulder

An Inge dislocation is a defect where…

Remember Lethal Weapon 2 when Mel Gibson dislocates his own shoulder to get out of a straitjacket and then banged it back into place? That’s pretty much what Oakland’s Brandon Inge did Saturday night.

Inge said he dislocated his left shoulder in the seventh inning of Saturday’s game when he tried to make a diving stop on a base hit by Alex Rios. He then tugged his arm to put it back in place, he told reporters (including Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle). Two batters later he started an inning-ending double play.

Oh, and then he hit the game-winning two-run single in the eighth inning off of Chicago’s Brett Myers.

Well crap. I just submitted this. Sorry for the dupe! One of the weirdest things I've seen happen during a ball game.

I posted about this in the lounge during the game, but I was watching the game somewhat inattentively and saw the play where Inge got hurt. And then I saw him hit the double and was dumbfounded. Hadn't I just seen him break his wrist fifteen minutes ago? What is he still doing in the game?

I guess the wrist grabbing was actually the pulling on his arm to put his shoulder back in. Crazy.

This has to be the grittiest thing I've seen a player do this year.

This is upstaging Huston Street who the other day looked like he blew up his ankle while getting the save for the Padres in somewhat less exciting fashion.

Also upstages when Curt Schilling put food coloring on his sock.

That magically kept getting bigger as every camera east of the Mississippi was glaring at his ankle for 3 hrs straight.

Shockingly, Adam Rosales will start today at 3rd.

What a badass. That looked like what was happening, but Hawk and Stone were speculating it was his wrist.

If Inge hits the DL, I wonder if they'll with the parade of futility IFers (Sogard, Hicks, Rosales) or try give Donaldson another shot (1.000 OPS in AAA).

...and yet he goes on the DL after awkwardly adjusting a pillow.


This is pretty awesome. I love hearing stories like this, as much as they make me cringe.

Aaron Cook continuing to pitch after opening up a gash on his leg the size and shape of his mouth was pretty impressive too.

When I played indoor soccer as a goalie, my shoulder would fly out of the socket like that sometimes. You put it back in and go on. Obviously a baseball player has a lot more moving pieces what with batting and all.

Yeah, you'll be in a lot less pain if you pop it back in.

I mean impressive and all but not like the 4x400 anchor running 200 m on a broken leg.

Jesus, it even looks like it has a mustache.

Saw a post-game interview where he claims he's dislocated it 16-17 times so it wasn't a big deal.
