Graphic violence, bat and arm
Boomsticks 1 and 2
I was there for all 20 runs and all 35 hits, but my friends were right: The moment I won't forget from Texas 13, Baltimore 7 was the throw Nelson Cruz made to the plate in the fifth, on Adam Jones's flyout to right with nobody out, men on the corners, and what felt like a teetering 8-4 Texas lead. Scott Feldman escaped the inning without further damage and retired five of the next six, starting all but one of them with strike one, throwing 17 strikes out of 23 in that span, and ending his night on a positive note.
Luke Scott didn't run on Cruz. There was no assist. It goes into the books as an F-9, and nothing more. But it was majestic.
Cruz might have been a triple short of the cycle (or as Jim Knox put it, "one hit" short of the cycle), but defensively he was nothing short of awesome.
