As I watched the game, I couldn't help myself thinking how DeShields would have not made any of thoseThe Rays put together one of the greatest team defensive performances I’ve ever seen last night.
They straight up robbed 7 hits with spectacular defensive plays both in the outfield and on the infield.
For the series the Astros have THIRTEEN balls hit with an expected batting average of .500+ that have gone for outs.
Brett Phillips running away from his teammates mobbing him while airplaning (and one going tumbling away after they dived in an attempt to tackle him) was utterly absurd and hilarious. Not a single Ray was at home plate to greet the guy that actually scored the game winner.This World Series has gotten very good indeed!
Brett Phillips tying it up with 2 outs and 2 strikes? That's like Michael Martinez coming through in the clutch!
And the sheer luck of 2 Dodger errors allowing Arozarena to score after falling to the ground?
TB was absolutely depleted and in no position to win an extra inning game. Just an astonishing turn of events.
