Oh man. Last night’s Game 3 of the ALCS between the Yankees and the Red Sox was quite possibly the best baseball game I’ve ever watched on TV.
Let me explain something. I hate watching baseball on TV. I think it’s terribly boring, because most of what you see is a guy standing around waiting for a ball to be thrown his way.
Not last night.
Last night was a hitfest of epic proportions. The two teams combined for 37 hits and 27 runs over a time of 4:20, all three postseason records. Matsui went 5-for-6 with two homers, two doubles, and five RBI, and Sheffield went 4-for-5 with a homer, a double, and four RBI. The Yankees had 13 extra-base hits, and the two teams combined for 20, both also (I think) records.
I feel sorry for the two teams’ pitching staffs. But only a little bit. That was way too fun to watch.
