FINAL: Red Sox 6 A's 5
First of all, I have to get this off my chest. When Stephen Drew hit that game tying, two run triple in the fourth inning I nearly shit a brick. Im not saying I now like the guy now. I was just friggin stunned. He actually did something. And considering the Red Sox won by one run, that triple was huge.
Im not going to start wash his balls right now and I still don’t think he’s worth $9.5 million, but that hit was big. I also must note that after the triple, he proceeded to play like shit the piece of shit he is. Drew didnt get another hit and ended the day 1 for 4. So thats that.
Anyway, enough shitting on Stephen Drew. For the first time all season, Jon Lester wasn’t dominant. He allowed a season high 6 hits and a season high 6 walks. But in the end, it didn’t matter. The Red Sox found a way to win.
Ortiz and Napoli had back to back doubles and Andrew Bailey made the A’s his bitch in the ninth, striking out the side and getting his fifth save. Good all around win.
So, in the end, the Red Sox took two of three from the As. Pissa. As of right now, the Red Sox have the best record in the American league and the pathetic Houston Astros come to Fenway for a four game series. They must be licking their friggin chops.
