We Were Bound To Lose One Of These Nutty Games...

Why do we live in the world of the Bizarre Games? Tonight's weirdness: Lester's pitching a perfect game with two outs in the sixth, up 1-0. Fly ball into the gap in left-center. It looks dangerous...but Patterson cruises over, the ball hangs up a little, and he gets there...and drops the ball. Next guy: DONG. So there went the perfecto, then there went the no-hitter, shutout*, and lead. It stayed 2-1 until the bottom of the 8th, when the Ms scored on a safety squeeze, and then Delcarmen came in and cot-crapped, so we were done. 5-1 loss. Had Patterson just caught the damn ball, we could be talking about a perfect game and more imp., a win.

Yanks lost. TB won.

*Omitted by Don/Rem. I guess complete games are so rare these days, "shutout" had kind of disappeared from people's minds.
