Feeling buggy

Regardless of what some athletes and coaches say, God does not care who wins baseball games and other sporting events.

Apparently, Mother Nature does.

First, the clouds disappear when Colorado is hitting in Game 1 against Philadelphia. The result: 3 runs and a 1-0 series lead.

Then the bizarro world takes over Cleveland on Friday night, sending a plague of midges, not midgets, into Jacobs Field.

The small mosquito-like insects caused enough commotion to allow Cleveland to tie the game off supposedly unhittable Joba Chamberlain without a hit. Three innings later, Travis Hafner lined a shot through a swarm of bugs and muggy Cleveland air to give Cleveland a bug-aided 2-0 series lead heading back to Yankee Stadium.

Wild and wacky? Yes, it must be October.
