FINAL: Red Sox 3 Blue Jays 1
How good are things going for the Red Sox right now? David Ortiz, who had been in beast mode all season, had a scheduled night off and the Red Sox won anyway. Andrew Bailey wasn’t available because of a sore bicep and Joel Hanrahan came in for the ninth and didn’t shit the bed.
Sure, the Blue Jays suck this year. But this game was there for the taking and the Red Sox didnt mail it in. And I have to give Hanrahan credit--I shit on him when he doesnt execute and last night he came in for the ninth and pitched a pretty clean inning. Im not going to wash his balls, but I will tip my cap to the dude.
So in the end, the Red Sox ended up taking 2 of 3 from the Blue Jays and (still) have the best record in Major League Baseball. Not only do they have the best overall record, they also have the best road record, at 9-3.
