This past week featured even more exciting walk offs, adding to a season that has been pretty awesome so far. April 23rd, Astros vs Mariners – Seager time again. Seattle’s offense was dormant for most of this game, notching two hits through the first six innings of the game. Then in the seventh, a Kyle Seager two-run homer made it a 3-2 game. The rest of the seventh and eighth innings were depressing for Seattle, but in the ninth, Seager followed a pair of singles with a three-run homer to give the Mariners a big 5-3 win. See guys, you don’t need to put runners on base every inning to win! April 23rd, Angels vs Nationals – oh, the Angels bullpen… The Angels dominated this game for eight and a half innings, and Ernesto Frieri looked to lock up a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the ninth. He failed in spectacular fashion, first allowing a lead off homer to Jose Lobaton to make it 4-2, and following up a Zach Walters strikeout by allowing a single, a walk, and a two-run double to Jayson Werth that notched the game at four. Fernando Salas replaced Frieri and immediately allowed a walk off single to Adam LaRoche to end the game. April 25th, Marlins vs Mets – it ain’t LOLMets today! Steve Cishek is one of the more underrated closers in the game, but he just didn’t have good luck on Friday in Flushing. After allowing a lead off single to Lucas Duda, Cishek notched a pair of quick outs before allowing a single to Omar Quintanilla that scored Duda in large part to a Christian Yelich bobble. Kirk Nieuwenhuis doubled to put men on second and third with two outs, and Curtis Granderson hit a laser of a ground ball that was misplayed by first baseman Garrett Jones to end the game. That’s just not fair, man. April 25th, Rays vs White Sox – the legend of Jose Abreu. Jose Abreu walk off grand slam. Hawk Harrelson heart attack. Works pretty well for me. April 27th, Indians vs Giants – playing the matchups. Managers put too much faith in “the matchups” sometimes. Terry Francona intentionally walked light hitting left-hander Brandon Crawford to get to right-handed Brandon Hicks. As you can tell, it didn’t work out, as Hicks tomahawked this Cody Allen fastball over the left field fence at AT&T Park to give the Giants the win.
