World Series Game 6
The WEIRD SERIES...ends with Game 6.
This is Boston celebrating. They would have liked to celebrate at home, and they did.
Scorekeeper's Note: The weirdest play happens in the bottom of the 5th inning, Boston already up 6-0, Jacoby Ellsbury on 1B after reaching on an error (Matt Carpenter's 2nd errah of the Series). During Dustin Pedroia's AB, Ellsbury heads for second...and returns safely on a 1-3-4-3-6-3 PO attempt. According to the Rules - this is not a Stolen Base Attempt...it would have been considered an attempt only if Ellsbury was either safe at 2B (successful), or caught at either 1B or 2B as a result of the Pick-off (unsuccessful). You can't give credit for something that didn't result in either outcome, regardless of the intention at the time.
Boston wins the Series 4-2. Cue "Dirty Water."
