In case you missed it, the Oakland Athletics and Smash Mouth do not like one another. It is the weirdest feud in sports, as the third-worst team in the American League in 2016 and the band that has spent the last 20 years singing “All-Star” got into it recently on Twitter over the way that Oakland’s front office approaches free agency.

Fast forward a few days to Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night. Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell played a big role in helping his team force a Game 7. Russell carved up the Cleveland Indians’ pitching staff, going 2-for-5 with six RBIs in Chicago’s 9-3 victory. One of those at bats ended in Russell hitting the first World Series grand slam since 2005 and the first World Series grand slam in franchise history.
