Tyler Flowers’ walk-off homer deflates the free-falling A’s


I was watching the 12th inning of the A’s-White Sox game late last night when Chicago catcher Tyler Flowers hit a walk-off homer against Oakland right-hander Jesse Chavez, who literally walked off the field as soon as the pitch was hit.

Here’s the video from MLB.com, which unfortunately only has the White Sox announcing feed available:

I was listening to the A’s announcers and their reaction was like if you were at a funeral for your grandmother and someone told you your grandfather had just died.

Sad on sad on sad. And nine losses in eleven games for the A’s.
