KC Headlines: Jose Lobaton, Grant Balfour Goes Crazy, “Gravity”


ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

Cardinals 2, Pirates 1 (Series tied at 2-2)

Game 5. Discuss.

Athletics 6, Detroit 3 (OAK leads series 2-1)

Grant Balfour. Discuss.

Tampa Bay 5, Red Sox 4 (BOS leads series 2-1)

Jose Lobaton. Discuss.

Also, Wil Myers left with leg cramps, which lead to Tampa not being able to use a designated hitter for the rest of the game. That spot ended up being Lobaton’s in the end. Figures – Wil Myers always wins.
