Mickey Owens Redux?

It had to be that the baseball gods would not allow Mark Buehrle to lose Game 2 of the ALCS -- even if his teammates were unable to win it for him using natural means.

A.J. Pierzynski made it to first with two outs in the bottom of the ninth after swinging at strike three. A controversial call of a dropped third strike allowed Pierzynski to take first. After stealing second without contest, PR Pablo Ozuna scored on Joe Crede's smash off the wall. The run gave Buehrle a 2-1 win that he certainly deserved, even if the rest of the team might not have, and tied the series at one game each.

Next up, Friday in the OC.
