Rudy Seanez into the game in the seventh inning. First two batters, two hard hit balls. One was scored "F8, RC." The other was scored "HR, 420'."
Royals lead 6-4 into the 8th.
If you want a New England-biased football metaphor, this is the Buffalo Bills (Royals) taking a 21-7 lead on the Pats (the Sox) late in the third quarter on JP Losman's second TD pass.
If you want a Colonial American revolution metaphor, this is Aaron Burr on his seventh pace, ready to turn and fire towards Alexander Hamilton.
Your humble and obedient servant,
