CWS: Okay, that was the most bizarre inning I've seen all year.

By Eric Sorenson - June 16, 2006

But it helped when things got extremely weird.

A very, very questionable called ball four on leadoff hitter Cory Vanderhook, a highly-improbable "stolen base" with the help of a horrible throw by UNC Catcher Tim Federowicz (it was, in fact, laugh-inducing), then a bizarre dropped third strike and throwing error on said catcher. A butcher boy fielder's choice by Blake Davis and a pickoff of third by Vanderhook led to three-hole hitter Brett Pill.

Pill struck out, BUT Federowicz couldn't wrangle the ball in, allowing Pill to reach first safely. The Heels then intentionally walked Danny Dorn, loading the bases.

If you're still following here, Frosh David Cooper mercifully put things to an end with a pop-up to short right that saw Seth Williams have to make a diving catch for.

You know what? I'm still not sure I got all that right. We go to the 12th.
