Remember Lethal Weapon 2 when Mel Gibson dislocates his own shoulder to get out of a straitjacket and then banged it back into place? That's pretty much what Oakland's Brandon Inge did Saturday night.
Inge said he dislocated his left shoulder in the seventh inning of Saturday's game when he tried to make a diving stop on a base hit by Alex Rios. He then tugged his arm to put it back in place, he told reporters (including Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle). Two batters later he started an inning-ending double play.
Watch it here:
Oh, and then he hit the game-winning two-run single in the eighth inning off of Chicago's Brett Myers.
And not only that, he told reporters that he's planning on playing Sunday.
That's just awesome.
