PAPS AGAIN The Culprit...Red Sox Lose 6-5

Boy, this afternoon's game in Toronto shows all of Red Sox Nation that again, Jonathon Papelbon has major flaws. This is from the Boston Globe. I'll have a full recap in the morning. Right now my stomach isn't up to it. You be the judge...

"Fred Lewis' sacrifice fly capped a four-run rally in the ninth inning and lifted Toronto to a 6-5 victory over Boston on Thursday, just the Blue Jays' third win in 12 games against the Red Sox this season. Trailing 5-2, Toronto's Jose Bautista chased John Lackey by leading off the ninth with his major league-leading 36th homer. Jonathan Papelbon (4-5) came on and blew his sixth save of the season, and his first in 25 career chances against the Blue Jays. Vernon Wells greeted Papelbon with a double and scored when Adam Lind lined a single up the middle. Pinch-runner Dewayne Wise stole second and moved to third when Aaron Hill singled off Papelbon's left foot. Papelbon stayed in the game and struck out Travis Snider, but Encarnacion tied it with a double down the line in left. Pinch-hitter Lyle Overbay was walked intentionally to load the bases for Lewis, who hit a fly ball to shallow center off Daniel Bard. Hill tagged up and slid home well ahead of the throw from Jacoby Ellsbury."
