LaPorta Chopper Better Than A's Rockets

AN looks at the fitting nature of the Indians winning on a chopper up the middle:

If you’re interested in how luck plays a part in everyday baseball, contrast the game-winning hit with the A’s top of the 8th. Suzuki scorches a liner speared by Jason Donald at SS, Sweeney hits a rocket to RF right at Kearns, Cust walks, and Rosales cracks a bid for extra bases down the 3B line into the glove of Jhonny Peralta.

So it was perhaps fitting that Matt LaPorta won the game with a chopper over the mound and into CF, over Craig Breslow, perfectly splitting Cliff Pennington and Mark Ellis.
