The error was a joke. Victor Martinez had Ichiro nailed on his attempted steal of third with a 1-0 lead, but Fake couldn't catch a simple everyday throw to third, allowing Ichiro to trot home from third and tie the game at 1-1.
Oh, but he had a chance to redeem himself and be the hero in the 10th with the scored tied at two. I got the following text from my boy Ags: "dp or k, guaranteed." He was right. David Dellucci followed with a K of his own to end the rally.
Did I mention Eric Wedge's bright idea of hitting Fake second and Dellucci third tonight? What on God's green earth gave him the idea that this was a smart move? That brilliant line of thinking was good for one run of four hits through nine innings.
