Madre de Dios! Ese Alex Rios!

by James Finn Garner

Among Omar Infante’s dislikes
Must be incoming baserunners – Yikes!
To dodge getting maimed
Cost the Bengals the game —
One of inches, and feet wearing spikes.

    The play of the year?

  2. Hilary Barta wrote,

    No error, the throw not a blunder,
    The slide took poor O out from under
    To second Al zipped,
    Infante was tripped,
    And the Tigers’ had hopes rent asunder.

  3. James Finn Garner wrote,

    Amazing how slim the margin between success and error were in that play.

    Unlike, say, DeWayne Wise’s base-running in the 8th.

  4. Hilary Barta wrote,

    Very much so.
