Every year in baseball, there are games that are beyond comprehension. Last night in Oklahoma City (BOOOOO!!!) the Tacoma Rainiers managed to lose a game in 10 innings, 7-6. But here’s the kicker. They had a six run lead …. in the ninth inning …. with two outs.
Here’s the story from Mike Curto …
Trailing by six runs with two outs and nobody on base in the bottom of the ninth inning, Oklahoma rallied for to tie and then won the game in the tenth inning, 7-6.
It was a stunning turnabout in a game that the Rainiers seemed to have all sewn up since the fourth inning.
“We snatched that one,” said grinning RedHawks manager Tony DeFrancesco, whose team has won nine straight home games. “Once a year you might have a comeback like that.”
