Good call, Alex.

Tino v Langston is the comparative situation *my* brain came up with as well.

LOVED the shot on YES of Alex trying really hard ... and failing ... to keep the smile off his face after not getting called out on strikes.

It was lucky, but good teams capitalize on lucky breaks ... and Alex certainly did that tonite.

Funny, Tino was calling the game with Sterling last night, because Suzyn was home for Yom Kippur. I heard a couple of innings on the car radio as I drove my son home from his soccer game.

As Jon states in the immediately above post, the pitch wasn't a strike. It was an a good - and not particularly difficult - call. Gameday shows it outside the strike zone.

[0] Alex, I thought the same thing. Only difference in the at-bat was that the Langston pitch in question was 2-2, bringing the count full.
