The Rangers had a two-run lead going to the bottom of the 9th. Had their closer on the mound and two outs. Two strikes. BAM! Tie game.
Top of the 10th, Andrus gets on base (one of the very few times in the series). The injured Hamilton comes up and hits a two-run homer! It's a miracle! Hurray!
Bottom of the 10th and Wash inexplicably sends out Darren Fucking Oliver. Two outs, two strikes ... and two runs and a tie game later he sends out Scooter Feldman who ends the inning.
Suffice it to say, Wash bungled the game in so many ways (even after they overcame their errors - STL made several so the errors were a wash IMO) that his final bungle did 'em in when Mark I'm-a-pitching-machine-HR-yielding-fool Lowe came in and gave up the game-winning HR.First tweet after I learned Lowe was coming into the game.And the one right after he started off with a 2-0 count.
And on the next pitch ...
