Tied at 4, Kendall on 3rd, Crosby on 1st, Chavez at the plate, & K-Rod pitching. Crosby steals 2nd, K-Rod's pitch is a ball, & K-Rod looks in disbelief. On Bengie Molina's throw back to the mound, the ball skips off of K-Rod's glove. Kendall races home and beats the throw for the A's victory. A's are now in 1st place in the West.

Strange way to end the game, & the Angels announcers were going ballistic.

Jason Kendall scores on defensive indifference.

The afternoon guys on the local ESPN affiliate are going to crap themselves. Should make for some good radio.

Sounds more like "defensive incompetence" to me.

I'd much rather the Indians or Yankees win the WC than the Angels.

Wow that was a crazy ending!

Just watched it on MLB.TV.....

The funny thing was, not 15 seconds before it happened, the Angels announcer was stressing how important it was for catcher Jose Molina to block a slider in the dirt, because they "wouldnt want to lose on a wild pitch..."

Well, at least they didnt lose on a wild pitch :roflmao:

I read on the Angels message board last week that one of their fans heard Chavez state the A's could care less about Anaheim. They want to get homefield advantage by eclipsing the White Sox.

I just saw the play a few minutes ago. No excuse for KRod to have a lapse in concentration like that (especially being on my fantasy team), but that was undoubtedly a strike (umpires' missing calls on my fantasy players is also unacceptable).

Hell, for all I care, let them finish in first and give someone else a chance to beat them before we'd have to face them in the playoffs. The A's are just a team we don't match up with very well.

Absolutely, and I think I'd rather the A's than the Angels too. But if the Toons win the WC we wouldn't face them anyways. I would love to beat the Yankmees in the ALDS.

"incompetence", "indifference", sounds like these long words could be compacted into one short word,..........Cubs!

How do you score "indifference" in a scorebook? I guess this applies to uncontested steals late in a game too.

I Like it!
