Sporting Life Blues
Norts Spews the Iowa Cubs got an extra inning win at Principal Park.
According to the sports geniuses, the win came in the top of the 11th inning on a roller to New Orleans pitcher Gary Glover that amounted to a walk-off win.
Sports News Flash -- the Home Team does not bat in the top of any inning and the scientific community is united in that fact.
On a roller back to the pitcher, I doubt there was any walking involved, but as annoying as the term walk off has become, this is at least as close to the original intent of the phrase.

I can understand the Ragister wanting to play up the somewhat local angle, but this makes it seem like the Iowa-based gymnast has the cover of Sports Illustrated (below) to herself.
