Brennen Davis Flies-off to South Bend as A's Green Walk-off at Fitch Park
Iraj Serrano drilled a walk-off line-drive RBI single to RF with one out in the bottom of the 9th to drive-in Yhoelnys Gonzalez with the winning run as the Athletics Green squad rallied for a run in the 8th and one in the 9th to edge the Cubs "B" team 2-1 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Saturday morning on Field #4 at the Lew Wolff Training Complex at Fitch Park in Mesa, AZ.
Fabian Pertuz singled twice, stole a base, and scored the lone Cub run, Caleb Knight rifled the sharply hit ground RBI single to CF that scored Pertuz, threw-out two A's baserunners attempting to steal, and back-picked another one off 1st base, and Jorge Remon, Blake Whitney, and Chris Allen combined to hurl six innings of one-hit shutout ball with eight strikeouts for the Cubs.

“It did not feel good to take Javy out of the game,” Ross said. “I never feel comfortable doing that at all. That's a pit in my stomach and it was in my stomach the entire game.”
“I blame it on myself. I lost the count of the outs,” Báez said. “We talked about it. We're on the same page. I'll be there tomorrow to help the team.”

The thing that gets me is that she cheated with the guy providing religous-based pre-marital counseling. Hmmm... this guy is abusing his (quasi-)professional couseling position to pursue an intimate relationship; forgot the parts of the Bible about lying, cheating, & doing dirty by the 2016 WS MVP; and clearly has very conflicted feelings on the marriage construct... yep, I'm blowing up multiple people's lives to ride-or-die with THAT guy.
