A famous broadcaster once again, ‘Welp, you can’t predict baseball, Suzyn’. Oh how the irony reigns supreme.
With the Yankees clinging to a 2-1 lead in the seventh inning with TB runners on first and second, a fly ball was hit fairly deep to center. The Grandy Man went back and lost the ball in the ceiling. We’ve seen him make that routine play time after time, but Granderson lost the ball in the ceiling, allowing all runners to advance. Boone Logan induced a grounder back to the mound for the 1-2-3 double play, but it hopped off his glove, allowing the Rays to take the lead, 3-2. The Rays would not relinquish this lead, which leads me back to this famous saying: ‘You can’t predict baseball, Suzyn’.
