Marco Scutaro does a little dance, scores the tying run

Leave a comment

On third base with two outs in the fourth, Marco Scutaro managed to induce a game-tying balk by dancing off the bag and getting Alfredo Simon to flinch in Boston’s game against Baltimore.

Scutaro took a big lead and threatened to steal home, catching Simon’s eye in the process.  It didn’t lead to much of a move, but it was enough to tie things up at Camden Yards.  It’s a 2-2 game headed to the bottom of the fourth.

The Yankees remain up 5-0 in the bottom of the third.  George Kontos has replaced Yankee starter Dellin Betances in the contest.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
