Shin-Soo Choo’s Game-Winning Single Was Hithcockian In Its Execution

Shin-Soo Choo game-winning, walkoff hit off Kyle Farnsworth in the 10th inning ricocheted off a seagull away from Coco Crisp and rolled to the wall as the Indians defeated the Royals 4-3.

Man, Cleveland sure has problems with members of the animal kingdom disrupting games. In 2007, a swarm of bugs disrupted Game 2 of the ALDS between the Indians and the Yankees.

All I know is “I Ran” was probably not one of the songs played in the Royals’ clubhouse after the game. Not because the song is by Flock of Seagulls, but because I have on good word that no one on the Royals likes ’80s music.

Additional non-ESPN video after the jump. At least, until MLB decides to pull it because the video got posted without its expressed written consent.
