Bullpen's Generosity Brings On A Sox Comeback

Josh Beckett gave up 3 runs in his 6 pitched innings. The bullpen, namely Hansen and Timlin, could not hold the fort, giving up another 3 runs in the next 2 innings. But it was the 8th inning. The Sox were about to score. A Papi homerun, number 35, 2 singles, and Mr. Doubles, Mike Lowell, clearing those runners not with a hard line bullet but a pop fly down the rightfield line that took one bounce in fair territory and plopped into the stands. Ground rule double. Tie score. High fives around the room. And Paps coming on, to hold the Angels until Papi could come up again. And hold him he did, for 2 innings. After 10, 6 all.
Tavarez pitched an uneventful (!) 11th, and it was Papi again, with a grounder through the vacated shortstop hole to win the ballgame. As only he can do. And yes, the Yankees were drubbed, and what could have been a wasted opportunity and a wasted Saturday afternoon had a joyous ending. 35 HRs, 99 RBIs....not bad for July stats! And Manny has been hitting line drives, too. Great timing.
We play tonight in front of the nation. Curt Schilling versus John Lackey. Bring 'em on!

And of course it HAD to be red! Click on it, and view all the free, any style, any color, analog or digital choices. Then it gives you the code, which you paste into your template right where the sidebar lisings are. To be honest, I didn't know where the clock would show up until I republished and viewed my blog. Kinda happy it landed there.

I saw it....we;'re not the only ones. If you wanted to get your clock higher on your page, just do it again. Mine is where I like it..on the page w/o scrolling down.
