This is starting to play out as predicted: Amy, no longer clumsy, is turning into a regular
Brooks Robinson Graig Nettles Scott Rolen Brooks Robinson out there. Honestly, there’s very little to snark on here beyond the Goshen baserunner’s awkward headfirst stumble slide attempt in P2. We know from exposition (http://gilthorp.wordpress.com/2014/04/12/whos-clumsy-now/ – my href tags won’t close) that Milford #4 is 2B Nisha Vulaj; hence that awkward slide could be an awkward dive back to second base and we’re witnessing a 5-4 double play. (I haven’t found a similar 5-4 video clip yet this morning, and only one with a pop-up bunt turned into a twin killing at second – a 1-6 and, coincidentally, turned by the O’s.)
Amy’s increasing confidence – she’s already grinning at the plate! – leads to an RBI wak! Will Amy’s train of luck keep a rollin’ while Lucky’s comes off the rails? Stay tuned, while I leave you with an ode to old Number 5 himself.
