8/9 STRANGE DAYS INDEED

It’s hard to believe the Cleveland Indians scoring 11 runs off the KC Royals in the 9th inning might only be the 5th strangest thing to happen tonite.

An 18 year old fan plunged out of the upper deck at Yankee Stadium in the bottom of the 8th inning in a game against the White Sox. Scott Harper told his friends he wanted to see if the netting could hold his weight, before leaping onto it.

In Los Angeles Oscar Robles got a 1st inning hit & run single off the Phillies Robinson Tejeda on a pitch that bounced before it reached the plate. Cesar Izturis and Robles later scored to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead in a game in which they lost 8-4.

Jeff Kent didn’t help the Los Angeles Dodgers cause any. Kent became the 41st player to strike out four times in a nine inning game. Jeff had a chance to break the record, but was spared when Billy Wagner walked Kent on a 3-2 pitch in the 9th.

New York Mets thirdbaseman David Wright got a standing ovation for a catch he made against Padre Brian Giles in San Diego. Wright raced back and twisted in the air to snag the flair off Giles’ bat. David was in such a position that the only way he could grab it was with his bare hand, which he did. Later Wright came in on an easy bouncer and threw it away for an error. The Mets lost to the Padres 8-3.
