World Series Game 7: David Freese Double Ties Game

This is your annual (weekly, daily, whatever) reminder that it's pretty impressive anyone can go out on a pitching mound for a World Series Game 7 without wetting their drawers on national TV. I pitched exactly once when I was in high school, this girl I liked was watching me, and I hit the only two batters I faced. This is like that, but on a larger scale. So kudos to the professionals who do this for our enjoyment.

That written, Matt Harrison opened Game 7 of the World Series with a case of the jibblies. After two quick outs, he walked Albert Pujols on four pitches. Then he walked Lance Berkman on five pitches. He took David Freese to a 3-2 count before leaving a changeup over the plate. Freese, making a bid to be the MVP*, rocketed the pitch to into the left-center gap.


Both runners were running on the full count, and they scored easily. The Rangers surely must be stunned at how their lead evaporated so quickly, but if they can get another lead, they'll totally be able to hold it this time. Yep. No problem.

Freese was still in scoring position for Yadier Molina, who hit the ball well to center, but Josh Hamilton caught the ball with a leap as he approached the wall.

 

*Of everything. Not just this World Series.
