And that is why Trot Nixon has been on the roster all season long.
I admit when that double play wasn't turned in the fifth inning, a feeling of dread fell over me. I knew Manny would homer and I thought the series might be over. All we had left in the bullpen was Betancourt and there were four innings plus left to go.
But Lewis and Mastny stepped up and allowed the Indians to have a chance in extra innings.
The Tribe needed a split and they got one. That looms even bigger since both of our dual aces got lit up and the team still pulled out one victory. You can't ask for more.
Mark May of ESPN is a real idiot.
