You figure that if you score four runs in the top of an extra inning, you’ve won, right? Not so for the Marlins yesterday. The Braves came back with five in the bottom of the tenth. I can’t recall ever having seen such a line score before.
The defeat pretty much dashes the fading hopes for the Fish in the NL Wild Card race. That’s good news for every other contender, given that experience teaches that if the Fish win the Wild Card, they win the World Series.
But the NL West/Wild Card pile up among the Dodgers, Padres and Phillies sure is getting interesting! (Well, if you ignore the actual records in this year’s League of Medicorities; even the “runaway” Mets have faded badly–to the point of losing a three-game series in Pittsburgh while on the verge of clinching. They will get there, but they look less than the juggernaut that started the season.)

Fruits and Votes grafted A Wild 9th–and 10th.
A day after that incredibly wild 10th inning in the Mariners-Braves game, we had an unbelievable 9th inning in the Padres-Dodgers game. Oh, and the 10th wasn’t too bad, either.
