Joba Chamberlain knocked out of game by broken bat

On ESPN Radio, Dan Shulman said it's been an incredible game, and an incredible series.

And it got more incredible in the top of the 12th inning. With the game still tied 1-1, as it's been since the sixth inning, Baltimore's Matt Wieters led off against Joba Chamberlain, in for his second inning of work. After taking a pitch, Wieters parachuted a single into left field. That was nothing extraordinary; unfortunately for the Yankees, Chamberlain sawed off Wieters' bat at the handle, and the barrel helicoptered directly toward the mound. Chamberlain didn't notice until it was too late ...

Jobow

Chamberlain wanted to stay in and gave a few warmup tosses the old college try, but the trainer had other ideas and Joe Girardi called on David Phelps to take over on the mound.

Phelps, after taking as much time as he liked to get loose, was up to the job. After a long battle he got Lew Ford to fly out, ditto for Mark Reynolds, and struck out Robert Andino.

Yeah. Still 1-1 in the bottom of the 12th. This probably will not last forever.
