Last night may have been one of the greatest thrillers in baseball history, as well as an all-timer, and possibly one for the ages. All cliches aside, two runs in the ninth to tie it with two out, two more in the 10th to answer Josh Hamilton’s two-run shot, and a walkoff home run off the bat of David Freese in the 11th to force a Game 7. It’s probably fair to say what Buster tweeted is pretty accurate and not just morning-after hyperbole. That game was flat out ridiculous.
If Texas finds a way to recover from that merciless kick to the grapefruits, I will be stunned. One out, one out, from winning the World Series. How many times do they replay that in their heads today? Absolutely brutal.
As we wait for Game 7, one enormous question remains: Did this rollercoaster of baseball dramatics send Tim Kirkjian into a never-ending pirouette?
