Tigers Sweep A's!

It came just before eight o'clock, after three hours and 23 minutes of baseball, after two outs and extra innings looming, after Monroe cracked a single, and Placido Polanco -- the MVP of the American League Championship Series -- looped another single. Then Ordonez, who had a solo homer earlier in the game, stepped to the plate. [...]

"We know what kind of a hitter Magglio is," Polanco said. "It was just a matter of time before he hit one hard."

Hard? Ordonez took his destiny pitch over the wall, 385 feet away, and took half this state with it.
