Faced with Justin Verlander, A's fans try distraction

The guys with bats couldn't do anything, so the drunk flabby guys with towels tried. (They failed.)

Nobody was beating Justin Verlander last night. He went 6 2/3 no-hit innings, and even after allowing a single to Justin Verlander was near flawless, dealing heat late into the evening as he shut out the A's through eight innings in a decisive 3-0 Game 5 win.

Oakland's fans tried to do what their team's bats couldn't and get him off their game.

First they used their gross bellies:

Then they used their rally towels/penalty flags:

Turned out instead of distracting him they were just throwing in the towel.
