While You Lazy Bastids Were Sleeping, The Red Sox Beat The Yankees. FINAL: Red Sox 8 Yankees 7
So, the Red Sox ended up taking two of three from the fourth place Yankees. The Yankees really do suck.
Anyway, with the Red Sox down 3-1 in the third, Mike Napoli hit a 3-run home run to give them a 4-3 lead and then in the 11th, the dude hit a solo home run to give them the win. The guy is friggin clutch.
Jonny Gomes also hit a moon shot and we got to see David Ortiz steal a base, which was pretty cool. Ortiz now has four stolen bases on the season which is a career high for him. It was nice to see CC Sabathia suck on his birthday. The dude allowed 7 earned runs in 5 innings. The fat bastid probably got distracted thinking about the cake he planned on devouring after the game.
This was the Red Sox ninth walkoff win of the season and the fourth on a home run. This team is so friggin fun to watch. The Sox now have a 1.5 game lead over the Tampon Bay Rays, who come to town Monday for a four game series.
The Rays have won 17 of their last 19. Honestly, that team just doesnt scare me. You could tell me that they had just won 30 games in a row and I just wouldnt be intimidated by that team.
