I went to the game today. The A's lost, 7-0, but the game was much closer than that. Here's the play of the game, in the seventh inning:
If Hideki Matsui doesn't beat out this double play ball, the A's head to the bottom of the seventh trailing 1-0. Instead, a walk, a single, and a homer by Jason Giambi followed, and the game was suddenly out of reach.
I'm not quite sure how that didn't become a double play. Matsui hit a rocket. Perhaps Scutaro was too slow getting over to second base? I don't know, I didn't see a replay. Looking at this picture, I still don't know how Matsui beat it out.
