A couple of items of note from last night: Awesome game as a fan, but the Rays definitely screwed up in a couple of critical ways. Obviously Peralta's wild pitch came at a very bad time, but it was compounded by the fact that Ellsbury was both very fast and off with the pitch. If he didn't end up on third after that play, who knows what would have happened?
Also, on the next at-bat, Victorino appears to just flat-out beat the throw from Escobar at short. EXCEPT what the bleepity bleep was Escobar doing at double-play depth on that play? He has a guy on third, two outs, a relatively fast guy at the plate, and at DP depth he would take a *long* time to get to a slow ball, even one hit right at him. If he was in on the infield, a sharply hit ball would be a problem as it would be at any depth, but he would have gotten his team out of the inning in case of a broken-bat dribbler like the one Victorino hit.
Seems like a positioning mistake to me. And one that likely lost the game, the series, and the season for the Rays.
