As if this World Series isn't weird enough, check out this sequence of tweets:
So far the 2013 WS has gone exactly like the 1975 WS for Boston: W-L-L-W. Eager to see how Reggie Cleveland pitches tonight.— Tyler Kepner (@TylerKepner) October 28, 2013
@TylerKepner Red Sox win behind ace in game 1, lose lead late in game 2, lose game 3 in part to an umpire's call on a baserunning play ....— Craig Calcaterra (@craigcalcaterra) October 28, 2013
@craigcalcaterra I know, right? Same home/road split too. Spooky. And hey this new "Saturday Night" show on NBC has a real shot to make it.— Tyler Kepner (@TylerKepner) October 28, 2013
Never mind the SNL comment, if this series keeps going the way the first four games have, according to that conversation, we are in for one heck of a Game 6. Let's just hope the winning team isn't from the same league as in 1975.
Also, beyond having one game ending on an obstruction call and another on a pickoff play, remember that Game 1 nearly ended on a 9-3 putout on what otherwise was a clean single to right field.
What's next, a balk-off? Catcher's interference?
Game 5 time: 7 p.m. CT. TV: Fox. Announcers: Joe Buck, Tim McCarver, Ken Rosenthal, Erin Andrews. Series tied 2-2.
