Rant and Rise: Pittsburgh Steelers Win in Overtime, Bryce Harper and Mike Trout Win Rookie of the Year
Here’s the latest edition of Rant and Rise for November 13, 2012:
The Steelers managed to pick up their fourth-straight win of the season after a disappointing 2-3 start, but it certainly didn’t come easy as it took until overtime for them to come through with the 16-13 win over the Chiefs.
Shaun Suisham kicked the game-winning 23-yard field goal following an interception recorded by Lawrence Timmons, but the win didn’t come without some sort of loss for Pittsburgh as Ben Roethlisberger was forced to leave the game with a shoulder injury and even went to the hospital later that night. The severity of the injury is still unknown for Roethlisberger, but if he is unable to go for a few games–the Steelers will have to rely on Byron Leftwich to run the offense.
Bryce Harper and Mike Trout Take Home Rookie of the Year Honors
With the type of seasons displayed, it was no surprise to see Harper and Trout take home Rookie of the Year honors for the 2012 season in the National League and American League. Harper helped the Washington Nationals earn their first trip to the playoffs in franchise history since the move from Montreal and the argument can be made that Trout displayed one of the best seasons ever by a rookie for the Los Angeles Angels–even if they did fall short of the postseason.
While Harper batted .270 on the year to go along with 22 home runs and 59 RBIs, Trout finished with a .326 average with 30 home runs and 83 RBIs.
