Mariners Blow Huge Lead Because Manager Doesn’t Know Left From Right

Red Sox fans have gotten used to late game heroics, but even the biggest Sox believer knows that they got incredibly luck on Thursday night. With a huge lead, the Seattle Mariners should have walked away the winners, but one mistake cost them the game in the bottom of the ninth. 

Deadspin

After being down 7-2 in the ninth inning, the Boston Red Sox were able to pull off a comeback win, and send Seattle on the road with another big defeat.

In the above GIF, you see Seattle Manager Robby Thompson call for a left handed pitcher, when he meant to call for a right handed pitcher to help clean up the mess that their closer Tom Wilhelmsen got them into. What resulted was an even bigger mess, and a 8-7 loss.

The umpires made Thompson use the left handed pitcher, because you know, baseball. Rules are rules, and despite Thompson’s quick correction, he had to stick with it.
