If you are not my mother…

…you may not know that we split the Doubleheader today against Canberra, losing the first game 6-3 and winning the second 5-4 (on a walk-off balk).

Blue Sox were down 4-1 heading in to the bottom of the 7th (we only planned to go 7 no matter what), and with a walk, 2 triples and a single we were tied 4-4.  Pitching change occurred and before the relief pitcher even threw his first pitch he apparently balked, Blue Sox win with runner scoring from third.

I have seen some balks with runners on third before, as well as some walk-off walks, but I do not remember seeing a balk-off.  So I googled “walk off balk” and the first thing that shows up:

Of course it had to be a Mets example =(

90% of the stadium had no clue what happened but everyone had a good time and now we have one day off before back to the stadium for a ramp up to the Opening Series this week against the Melbourne Aces.  Let’s go!
