Yeah, I finally used that cliched line as a headline because omgomgomg, that was awesome!
Look, if you want an even-keeled game recap, just go here. Yes, Trevor Hoffman blew his second consecutive save. It is a little baffling, but it’s easy not to dwell on it when Casey picks you up like that. The clip from the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball presentation sums it all up in 42 seconds (watch it here). A shot of Trevor in the dugout with his head down. A confused Jon Miller saying “… Hoffman was just — he was so good last year.”
“THAT BALL IS HIT A MILE!!! And the Brewers are going to win it after all! CASEY MCGEHEE! Goodbye, and we’ll see ya later!”
