There's a Monty Python episode where our hero, Mr. Pither, ends up blindfolded and placed in front of a firing squad, who stand about 10 feet away.
Cut to shot of officer with his hand raised, without Pither in shot. Drum rolls. He brings his sword down. Volley of shots from the firing squad. The officer is looking in Pither's direction. Long pause.
Officer (to soldiers): How could you miss?
Our heroes, the A's, were rather like Mr. Pither today. They bungled themselves into facing a firing squad with baserunning and fielding gaffes all over the place, trailing 5-2 going into the eighth, and 5-4 going into the ninth.
But somehow the Jays missed, and giving the A's a victory with a bunch of wild pitches, poor defense, and weird baserunning themselves, including Carlos Delgado stealing one of the A's silly jokes by sliding into home plate, missing it, and getting tagged out.
As Mr. Pither says, "What a stroke of luck. My Crunchie was totally intact."
