In an unusual lineup on Wednesday night, the Kansas City Royals put Willie Bloomquist in the the third spot. It was a strange sight to see since Bloomsquist has never batted there.â†µ
Asked before the game about it, Royals manager Ned Yost said, ""I guarantee you he’ll get a couple of hits. You watch."â†µ
Heading into the 12th inning, Yost was wrong. Bloomquist was 1-for-5.â†µ
However, he eventually got it right. In the top of the 12th, Bloomquist hit a solo shot that would eventually be the game-winner.â†µ
It also meant Yost's guarantee was right. It's not exactly Joe Namath In Super Bowl III but interesting nonetheless.
