A bet isn’t a bet unless you shake on it, right? That is one lesson an Arizona Diamondbacks fan learned during Wednesday’s NL wild-card between the Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies.
During the bottom of the seventh inning, the Diamondbacks were hanging onto a 6-5 lead after coughing up a 6-0 early lead. With two runners on the bases and two outs, Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo decided to let his relief pitcher Archie Bradley go up to bat.
Usually when pitchers go up to bat, it’s expected as an easy out. One Diamondbacks fan was so confident that Rockies relief pitcher Pat Neshek would get the out that he placed an erroneous bet on Twitter.
