Must-click link: David Brown interviews the great Vin Scully

Leave a comment

When one of my favorite interviewers, David Brown of Yahoo! Sports, chats with the greatest announcer of all time, Dodgers legend Vin Scully, that is pretty much the definition of a must-click link:
Answer Man: Vin Scully talks candy, Dodgers and Bewitched
Even better, if you want to actually hear their chat and listen to Scully’s amazing voice, Brown posted the audio of the interview as well.

The Mariners turned an odd triple play with the help of Evan Gattis

Astros DH Evan Gattis unwittingly helped the Mariners complete a triple play in the fourth inning of Thursday afternoon’s game at Safeco Field. The Astros put runners on first and second on consecutive singles by Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, bringing Gattis to the plate.

Gattis check-swung at a first-pitch curve from Marco Gonzales, hitting a grounder to third base. Kyle Seager stepped on the third base bag and then threw to second base for the second out. There was not nearly enough time for Robinson Cano to get the throw to first base to complete a triple play. Gattis ostensibly lost track of the number of outs in the inning, so he just circled back to the dugout and the Mariners completed their triple play since Gattis went out of the baseline.

That’s the first triple play of the 2018 season. It’s the Mariners’ first triple play since July 26, 2015 against the Blue Jays.
