Suicide Squeeze

This has got to be my favorite baseball play. Runner leaves third for home as the pitcher throws, bunt by the hitter... unfortunately it was the Cardinals that executed it to perfection.

Well, the Cardinals won it. I think I'll cheer for the Boston Red Sox in the World Series - it has been a really long time for them.

Just a note thought, the last time the Houston Astros lost in the NLCS, the team that beat them (New York Mets) went on to beat... you guess it... the Boston Red Sox in the 1986 World Series. So for the baseball superstitious, perhaps the Red Sox are already doomed. ;) But, if they can win they will have buried the notion of a curse or jinx, as they climbed over the Yankees to get there.
