The Rays eked out a dramatic 8-7 walk-off win over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday night to tie the best-of-seven Fall Classic at 2-2 (box score). Reserve outfielder Brett Phillips notched a game-tying single in the ninth off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, and Randy Arozarena was also able to score on an error by center fielder Chris Taylor and then a mishandled throw by L.A. catcher Will Smith. It had already been a wild game before one of the wildest culminations to a World Series game in living memory came along. Here's a look at the final play:

Comments:

*Dayn Perry & Mike Axisa Here is momentary relief from political blahs: baseball (as Capone would say). The Rays are showing signs of being destiny's team in this truncated season. A win's a win. This one was fun. I love baseball.

Perhaps it’s just me but I didn’t know the World Series had started or even who was playing in it - I used to keep track of this stuff but I just don’t anymore......

I hadn't really been following baseball at all this year thanks to covid. Didn't even watch a Cubs game. Everything during the shortened regular season was live-stream and I wasn't willing to fork over money for it.

I don't know who any of these players are and am proud of that lack of wasteful use of my memory. I enjoy American sports and soccer by playing them in the field with friends or family but I don't care to watch arrogant professionals getting paid huge money to play, especially those who disrespect my flag.

I'm with you OP. I've been to the Trop many times cheering on the Rays and have watched hundreds of their games on TV. The game last night was areal nail-biter and the good guys won in a way you'll probably NEVER see again. Scared my wife when I jumped up and yelled. btw, when the season started and teams were doing their sickening kneeling to the blm THUGS, only TWO Rays people knelt...the first base coach and the third base coach. Everyone else remained standing for the anthem. Good on ya, Rays. WIN THE WORLD SERIES!!!!

I've seen only one complete major league baseball game in person. It was the Tampa Bay (then Devil) Rays against the Chicago White Socks in Chicago. I enjoyed it. Good people, a huge jumbotron, and many rituals both strange and fun for an adopted American. I honestly don't remember who won. I do remember a good day. I'm not much for sports in general, but in honor of that day, memories of my home state of Florida, and OP, I will adopt and support the 'Rays from here on out. GTMI!

#4 caused coffee spew. Tanks a lot. At the World Series venue in Dallas and on players uniforms I did not notice any preachy slogans or acronyms to distract fans from the action on the diamond, which has been quite entertaining so far in the first four games. The Rays were literally one strike from facing an elimination game, and suddenly they were all square at two games to two, needing to win two of the next three to take home the title. In the moments after the crazy celebration in the outfield, centerfielder Kevin Keirmaier asked, "What just happened?" Indeed. The Dodgers are very good. For our Rays to beat them, we'd like to see another couple of signs from heaven. As a professional golfer (no longer able to play because of three spinal fusion operations since 2018), I either experienced or witnessed what some would call the miraculous deliverances from seemingly impossible situations. That's the kind of thing that happens when you're going to win. Skill and luck are frequently found in the same place. Whatever else, The World Series is a welcome distraction from political commercials (Biden's) that are utterly insulting end to end lies, and sometimes cause me to take the Lord's name in vain, and have to repent for same. Pray, LDotters! Keep America America.

The “60 Minutes” interviews of the presidential and vice-presidential candidates last Sunday were more revealing for questions not asked and for sidestepping than for what inquiring minds really want to know prior to Election Day. First, there was the presumption that government has all the answers to contemporary problems. There was nothing said about liberty, personal responsibility, or accountability for one’s actions. The presumption among Democrats is that no one can do anything without government and if they succeed independent of Washington they will be penalized with higher taxes and more regulations to discourage initiative and risk-taking. Systemic racism? Mr. Biden’s response was to promise more spending to,

The night before the expected arrival of some great news is often filled with tension. Word from the Marathon, Waterloo, and Apollo 13 after reentry were times like those.

Joe Biden campaigned in Pennsylvania on Saturday and in three separate interviews by local media, was pressed about his comments during the debate about wanting to “transition” from fossil fuels to wind and solar power. He was also closely questioned about his views on fracking, that he still has trouble answering. This has become a genuine issue in Pennsylvania, an energy-producing state with tens of thousands of jobs in the industry. Fox News: “Look I’m from Scranton, Pennsylvania. My great grandfather was a mining engineer. So I come from coal country. And I’m not talking about eliminating fracking, I just said no more fracking on federal lands,” Biden told CBS Philadelphia.

During the Democratic primaries earlier this year, voters who cast early ballots for Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar in Super Tuesday states found out the hard way that early voting can be dangerous. Both candidates dropped out before Super Tuesday, and voters who cast ballots for them couldn’t do anything about it. They couldn’t revote. The only state that allowed voters to change their ballots was Minnesota, but the deadline had already passed. Scenarios like this should have been the nail in the coffin for early voting. But the pandemic raised concerns about in-person voting for many and has caused a huge surge

Whatever political momentum Joe Biden might have had going into the final debate, President Trump drank it right up on live TV. By the time it was over, Old Joe looked drained and confused, and the prez stood smiling like a kid slurping up every last drop of dessert before ordering seconds. Biden must have been thinking, "How did I get here?" Or rather, "How is it that this guy is still kicking my butt? I've got all the news corporations working on my behalf. Facebook and Twitter are actively censoring information that makes me look bad. The DOJ is still covering up the Russia hoax.

Some people who have seen the hastily hatched post-COVID voter rules in Democrat states know there are some serious ballot shenanigans going on this election. Now, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has wittingly – or unwittingly – confirmed it. You just never know with Joe. Was he misspeaking or just opening his mouth and removing the filter between his brain and mouth? Was it a Joe Bidenesque Freudian slip sniff? Biden was holding a rare campaign event – via video – when he boastfully proclaimed that his campaign operates “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper is the epidemy of modern journalism; partisan, incurious, grossly opinionated, and dedicated to his cause. Tapper was involved in a panel discussion with political commentator Bakari Sellers and made some startling statements about the Hunter Biden story that show what’s terribly wrong with journalists and CNN. (Snip) As an aside, Tapper and CNN didn’t consider it “too disgusting” to report on every salacious rumor about Donald Trump before and after the 2016 campaign. I wonder what changed? Did they suddenly get religion and decide reporting on Hunter Biden’s immorality was too “disgusting” to cover?

The person he interviewed was Tony Bobulinski, an experienced international businessman who found himself working with Hunter Biden, James Biden, and others on a deal between the Biden group and CEFC, a Chinese energy company with ties to the Communist government and the military. Bobulinski powerfully confirms that Joe Biden was deeply involved in the transaction, which had its beginnings when Joe was still Vice President.

Joe Biden called President Donald Trump “George” on Sunday, as if he were running against George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, or maybe George Washington, before catching himself. (Or being helped by someone outside the camera’s view.) He appeared to be a tired old man in need of help with his everyday life. Yet at both debates, though he made mistakes, he looked to be far more sentient, at times even sharp, in stark contrast to the doddering senior citizen we usually see. How can this happen? “What kind of country we’re gonna be,” Biden asked in a weekend interview

You can call me Pollyannish, but I am beginning to believe I may have underestimated the silent Trump vote in my previous posts. This is why. I mentioned the 2020 Cato Institute poll before, which discusses the high percentage of conservatives who are afraid to express their political views. Something I failed to consider was: Nearly two‐​thirds of Latino Americans (65%) and White Americans (64%) and nearly half of African Americans (49%) have political views they are afraid to share. Why would 65% of Latin voters and 49% of Black voters be afraid to express their political views, especially if 70-90% of them, respectively, are voting for Biden?
