Craig Breslow allows run to score on throwing error (GIF)

The Boston Red Sox somewhat resembled the St. Louis Cardinals during Game 2 of the World Series.

After taking a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning on David Ortiz’s 2-run home run, the Sox gave it right back the next inning. St. Louis loaded the bases loaded with one out. Boston had Craig Breslow in the game in relief of John Lackey.

Breslow allowed an RBI sacrifice fly to left to Matt Carpenter. Pete Kozma scored on Jonny Gomes’ throw home, but the throw got away from catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who was charged with an error for his poor fielding. Breslow backed up the throw home and picked up the ball and tried to gun down Jon Jay at third, but his throw was high and went into left field, allowing Jay to score. The game quickly went from 2-1 to 3-2 on that play, and then Breslow allowed an RBI single to Carlos Beltran on the next play.

Breslow only faced three batters and it wasn’t pretty. And if you’re wondering why we said the Sox looked like the Cardinals, watch this.

John Farrell did not enjoy what he was watching:

Craig Breslow Gets in on the Michelle and Rex Ryan Foot Fetish Fun (Video)

As expected, Rex Ryan has taken a lot of heat and a lot of ribbing for the recent foot fetish debacle he and his wife are the center of.  Charles Barkley weighed in on the matter by saying he’d show up to a meeting barefoot if he was a Jets player.  However, Barkley didn’t create a video.  Oakland A’s relief pitcher Craig Breslow has that covered.

I’m sure there are already a ton of Michelle and Rex Ryan spoof videos out there, but to see a professional athlete take the time to get in on the fun is particularly entertaining.  Breslow even created the video under the YouTube user name “ihaveprettylefthand,” in reference to Michelle’s video which was under the username “ihaveprettyfeet.”  Yes, Breslow is a left-handed pitcher, so it’s even more hilarious.  Check out the Criag Breslow foot fetish spoof video, courtesy of Deadspin:
