Baseball history is rife with postseason heroes. But for every hero, there is almost always a goat.
On Monday night in Texas, former University of Arizona hurler Ryan Perry became the answer to a trivia question.
Texas slugger Nelson Cruz took the ex-Wildcat deep with the bases loaded to give the Rangers a 7-3 win in 11 innings and a 2-0 lead in the American League Championship Series over Perry and the Detroit Tigers.
Perry gave up four hits and four runs to suffer his first-career postseason loss. In Game One, the Marana High School alum struck out one and yielded no hits or runs in 1.2 innings of work — including getting Tucson native Ian Kinsler to fly out to left field.
Perry — and former Wildcat and current Tiger pitcher Daniel Schlereth — get their shot at redemption in Game Three tonight in Detroit.
Ten straight losses to FBS teams won’t bode well for many college football coaches. As Arizona’s Mike Stoops found out on Monday night, it can be downright costly – or fruitful, depending on which side of a $1.4 buyout you side with. See what Arizona Wildcat Nation is saying about the departure of Stoops, who leaves the Old Pueblo after eight seasons with a 41-50 record.
