Just Like Anchorman re-runs, Archie Moore's wings, and Guinness...
...this Red Sox gamewinning hit business never gets old.
After Mike Timlin gives up a bomb to Travis Hafner in the 8th, and the Sox 3-4-5 hitters go 1-2-3, Jonathan Papelbon comes in for a spotless ninth.
In the bottom of the 9th, the Indians brought in Fausto Carmona to face the Sox' Wily Mo Pena, Coco Crisp, and Doug Mirabelli.
Mirabelli looked, well, like the .170 hitter he is, but got the count to 3-2. He got hit by a pitch. Gabe Kapler came in to pinch run for him.
Alex Gonzalez got hit by a pitch. First and second.
Kevin Youkilis drew a walk.
Mark Loretta got a middle/middle fastball and hit it hit off the Monster.
Two runs plate. 6-5 Sox. Win Sox.
I hope for three things: 1. that I have thick walls; b. that my neighbors like The Standells; 6. that I hit Powerball.
Your humble and obedient servant,
