The second- and third-place teams have won, and we're tied 3-3 in the fourth, after going down 3-0 in the first. Manny's dong just tied it.

There have been three unorthodox double plays in this game. And personally, I don't feel Don Orsillo is making enough out of this. Drew hit a grounder up the middle that the second baseman dove for. It bounced off of him and went right to second base, where the shortstop picked it up and threw to first for a DP. You know how rare that is? And I don't even remember a replay!

Then Jacoby hit a grounder right to the second base bag, and the shortstop got it, stepped on the base and threw to first to complete the DP. Not unusual in general, but when you think about it, that's essentially the only way to double the guy up.

Then there was a liner to center which Jacoby caught, and threw to first to double off Vlad, who, for some reason, had no idea where the ball was gonna land even though the play was right in front of him.

And now Clay gives up a dong to start the bottom of the fourth. 4-3 Angels.
