Andy Sonnanstine Bats- Third!

No, Sonnanstine didn't just get traded to an NL team nor are the Rays playing in an NL park. This is also not a mistake- well not one by me. Rays manager Joe Maddon made a mistake in his line up sheet he handed the umpires and accidentally put Ben Zorbist AND Evan Longoria in at 3B. Maddon meant to make Longoria, who was obviously supposed to bat third, the DH. But due to this mistake that Indians manager Eric Wedge pointed out (that DICK! haha) on Maddon's line up card, Maddon was forced to take Longoria out of the line up and make the pitcher hit. Also, Maddon couldn't take out Zorbist for Sonnanstine, he had to replace Longoria? I don't know.

Sonnanstine went 1-3 with an RBI and a K and also reached base after an intended sac hit got fucked up the the Indians defender. Sonnanstine also got the win for the Rays

Sorry, i was busy graduation college. Nice job showing up to graduation by the way. You missed many funzies. Though my day was kinda ruined by the Hawks/Cubs.

Pitch selection is a huge pet peeve with me, and harden has a habit of throwing the wrong pitch in the wrong time. I dont know if it's his fault or soto's, but fricky frick. Guy has unhittable stuff and fucks it up too much.

I wish Sonnanstine hit a home run so i could proclaim that he has more HR than David Ortiz

he's got a higher slugging, so he technically does have more power than ortiz :)
