Arrrgh!

That's one the Giants really let get away to the A's in the "Bay Bridge Series" interleague baseball game last night. Ray Durham will be having nightmares about that 3-1 pitch (1 out, bases loaded, score tied 3-3 in the bottom of the ninth) he popped up. And then in the tenth, the backup catcher went down (the first one already having been pulled due to injury), necessitating the emergency holographic catcher (infielder Pedro Feliz, who had never caught a big-league game before), an outfielder (Randy Winn) moving to third base, and pitcher Noah Lowry to come in and play right field (because the Giants had used up all of their position players).

It would have been a miracle if the Giants had been able to come back from that one. And there were no miracles in the air at Emperor Norton Field AT&T Park Friday night. Somehow it seems appropriate that pitcher-turned-right-fielder Lowry was the last out of the game. More messy details on the Giants web site.
