- The 2012 regular season slid in to home plate with the A’s and the Rangers squaring off and an Orioles must-win vs. the Rays. But since the Phillies are in the town, there will be a summary of all three.
- Darin Ruf of the Phils flew out and scored Carlos Ruiz.
- Off Cliff Lee, the Z-man did what he did 24 times before in 2012, trotting.
- Tyler Moore hit a double and scored Morse.
- Tyler Moore struck back, hitting his 10th homer of the year.
- Michael Morse did extend-o arms and hit his 18th big fly of 2012.
And then Michael Martinez flew out to Corey Brown to end the game and the Phillies’ season.
- Brandon Moss of the Oakland A’s hit a double off the Rangers’ Ryan Dempster
- Adrian Beltre singles and scores Ian Kinsler.
- Michael Young scored Josh Hamilton on a two-bagger.
- Derek Norris homered for the 7th time as an A.
And then when Michael Young flew out, Grant Balfour did a yes dance.
P.S. The Yankees won the AL East on a 14-2 win over the Red Sox and a O’s loss to the Rays due to 3 Longoria big flies
