It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Super-Sub, Josh Harrison.
The Oakland A’s were in a tight spot on Saturday. They led by two runs in the 9th inning, with two outs, but the Los Angeles Angels had the bases loaded. A single could tie it, and anything more could result in a walk-off loss, which would be devastating as Oakland needs every possible win to maintain their final 5% hopes of staying in the Wild Card race.
The A’s bullpen has been been mired in a deep slump for the past month, blowing nine saves in the span of 24 games entering last night.
