Our teams do not lose
Just like on Sunday, three of our teams played and all three won. It is ridiculous.
The Boston Red Sox (21-12) looked pretty lifeless last night, down 3-1 going into the eighth at Angel Stadium.
No problem, they tied it up in the inning then pushed across one more run in the ninth for a 4-3 win vs. the Angels (16-15).
Jered Weaver was great for Anaheim. He went seven innings, giving up one run on four hits with one walk and four strikeouts.
Justin Masterson kept the Sox in the game with six solid innings. He allowed two runs on five hits with four walks and three strikeouts.
Kendry Morales gave the Angels a 1-0 lead in the first with a sacrifice fly.
J.D. Drew (2 hits, 2 runs) answered with a solo home run in the second.
Playing Angels baseball, Maicer Izturis hit a RBI sacrifice fly in the fourth and Torii Hunter added an RBI single in the seventh to make it 3-1.
In the eighth, David Ortiz was hit by Darren Oliver (yes he's still alive) with the bases loaded. Jason Bay grounded with the bases loaded but it worked as Jacoby Ellsbury scored.
In the ninth, Jason Varitek (2 hits) knocked in Drew with an RBI double.
Ramon Ramirez (4-0) had another scoreless outing with a 1-2-3 eighth. How much of a steal has he been? He's one of the best setup guys in baseball and all we had to give the Royals was Coco Crisp.
Jonathan Papelbon earned his ninth save.
