A-Rod, on his 8th-inning strikout against Eric Gagne last night: “It was a fun at-bat. He just beat me fair and square.” Gagne got a huge break on a slider that was nowhere near the zone, but called a strike to push the count to 1-2. A-Rod whiffed on a full-count heater. And of course Matsui was called out to end the game on a pitch that looked outside.
So the “Game Over” streak continues, with a little help.
