And so his season ended as the ball streaked into the Monster seats. Mercifully it was over, boos cascading around the old park. 9 runs ended up scoring in that 7th inning, more than any other inning in two years. What a difference a night makes. And third place is ours again. That will change this weekend, as the Orioles come to town for the final three. And yes, it could have been worse. How? This could have been game number 162.
I really don't have anything to add about Wednesday night. I've written about every one of the preceding 159 games. The well has run dry. UNTIL TOMORROW NIGHT. Inspiration? There was none to be found at Fenway Park last night. None at all. Sad.
