Walk Off Tater By Jed Lowrie Carries Sox...Buchholz Goes Today

The Boston Red Sox had a 4-1 lead but let it evaporate into a tie. They broke that tie and won the game against the Blue Jays in the eleventh inning by a score of 5-4. Jed Lowrie's home run into the right field bullpen pulled the game out for Boston, who won 5-4. Here's THE MAN...

“I knew I hit it well,’’ Lowrie said. “But it’s a long ways out there at Fenway. I was just watching Jose Bautista, the right fielder, run after it and hoping it would keep going.

It kept going, alright, muscled out into the promised land. The final game of this three game set with the Jays begins at 1:35pm EDT with Buchholz, who is in the running for the Cy Young Award ready to face Marcum. If the Sox score three runs, they should win behind Clay!

In more injury news, the latest addition to the Red Sox gigantic DL list is Carlos Delgado. He was supposed to platoon with Mikey Lowell but now that task will probably fall to Jed Lowrie, who also plays first and IS HEALTHY.

That concludes a short but sweet Sunday post. Enjoy the game a little later today or get outside to enjoy a bit of the fading and shortening summer. Either way, you're golden. Click on this post's title for more on the Red Sox, including Lowrie's blast on the highlight reel and as always, BE WELL.
