Boston/Seattle Game #1

It stopped raining at Fenway and it's 4pm EDT. Going into the bottom of the 8th, it's Red Sox 4 Mariners 3. The ninth will be a Papelbon finish. More a little later. Hey, Beckett looked good.

Pap's pitching. Now 5-3 Boston going into the 9th. A screaming liner that Paps gloves in self defense. His velocity looks GREAT. One out. The count is 0-2. 1-2. Still 1-2 on a foul ball to left. Still one big out. Another foul. Paps looks good with a two run cushion. It's tough to trust him with anything less (I'm sorry to say). 2-2. 3-2. Oi. Another foul to the left side. Still a full count. Pitch number 12. Beltre gloves it and throws to first. TWO OUTS. BELTRE GLOVES AND THROWS to foist for the third out. Beckett and his (our) team win it 5-3.

One more to go at 7:10pm EDT. Fenway Park.
