Just call it Manny being Manny.
The M’s extra-inning win over the Red Sox on Wednesday - giving Seattle a three-game sweep - came courtesy of Manny Ramirez playing leftfield as if it was filled with mines. Jose Lopez’s drive hit three-quarters up the left-field fence, but Manny played it as if he was going to have to make Ken Griffey Jr.-like leap to steal a home run. And he was off by a fence section.
Ichiro scored from first to give the M’s a 2-1 victory and pull them within five games of the Angels in the AL West.
We’ll log on early tomorrow with links to what I’m sure will be quite funny game stories. Until then, thanks Manny.
