DR gave this game away. It should have gone to extra innings, but they totally messed up a rundown with two outs, then let a popfly fall between the SS and LF. Terrible play in the 9th inning.

It should have gone into extra innings. A pop out to short left field landed on the confused shotstops head and a the runner (on second or first) scored. :redneck

Funny sports blooper type play, go Venezuela!

It didn't fall between the SS and LF, it boinked right off the SS head, and ricocheted almost to the warning track. I guess he lost it in the lights, but his back was turned and it landed smack dead on his coconut, allowing the winning run to score from first.
