I didn't make it to today's A's-Angels game until a few batters in, so I missed Rich Harden striking out the side on nine pitches in the top of the first. Why did he choose to do it in the first inning?
The game ended up going to extra innings and I left after the bottom of the 11th to make it home by 5pm, just missing Mark Ellis's walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 12th!
So I attended a game with two historic feats by the home side and missed them both, even though I caught every pitch of the 3.5 hours in the middle.
It's probably payback for seeing that triple play last weekend!
