From True Blue L.A.
I don’t know how they did it, but the Dodgers are somehow 9-1. Dee Gordon’s walk-off single capped a wild ninth inning that had a bizarre triple play in the top of the inning that may or may not have been legitimate. The bottom of the inning included a Juan Uribe sacrifice bunt. More details later, but wow.
From Gaslamp Ball
This was a perfectly good game until the umpire decided to call the absolute most ######## call I’ve ever seen, throwing up the foul ball sign for a good two seconds after a Jesus Guzman bailout accidental bunt and then after all the runners have registered the fact that they’re not supposed to run, Dale Scott ##### #### up by pointing to third base and making up the rule that says, on a foul ball, you’re allowed to throw the ball to third base and I’ll award you a triple play, because I am a horse’s ass.
DALE SCOTT, MLB UMPIRE, YOU SUCK.
for his generous support.
