Red Sox 07 game 96 Recap

Recap || Box|| Play by Play


W: Beckett (13-3) L: Contreras (5-12)
HR ► CWS: J. Thome (16) Bos: J. Lugo (6)

☼ The Bright - So many bright moments but this one goes to Coco for his 3 run triple.
☁ The Cloud - Contreras - 10 runs, count them, 10 runs!

Idle thoughts

Luckiest man in Boston is Tim Mcclelland who blew J.D.'s home run in the first. Fortunately, the bats stayed alive and came back to finish this game.

Key moments, the aforementioned double that should have been a 3 run home run, Thome's blast in the third in which it looked like the wheels might come off, Coco's triple, which reminded me of his hit against Mariano way back in April (another triple) and of course the coup de grâce Lugo's grand slam in the eighth.

I wonder what was said in the meeting before the game? Will be interesting to see if anyone breaks the silence and tells us what was said. Don't hold your breath though.

For once, Tito got thrown out of a game when he should have. When Mcclelland blew the home run call in the first, especially after last night's poor performance by this man in blue, not only was being rang up the right move, it was the necessary move. Way to go Tito!

Clean innings by Timlin, Okajima and Piniero sealed this game. Good job by all, now keep it up.
