Wow, what a game. The Rays would not emerge victorious, but it’s hard to fault Corey Dickerson and his three doubles on the day. Guy had a huge game, but just wait until you get to the ninth for all the floors of the emotional elevator. Mikie puts one up in Pujols-land to go ahead, but the Alex Colome would allow two of his six homers on the year in back to back fashion to give the Astros the walk-off. Hot, nasty power is hard to beat. I love Dickerson’s last double in the clip as it’s just a rocket shot that no outfielder ever would have a chance on. People get down on the big swing, but he transfers power like Obama, and there is no defense for when he connects.
