FINAL: Red Sox 4 Orioles 3
Once again, John Lackey pitched his balls off and got the no decision. This guy must be so friggin frustrated. He has been arguably the Red Sox best (at least most consistent) pitcher this season and the Red Sox offense always seems to get a case of limp dick on days he pitches.
But I shouldn’t be bitching right now. The Red Sox just won their fourth straight game. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is almost September and the Red Sox are actually surging as opposed to shitting the bed. That is friggin awesome.
Anyway, about the game. With the Red Sox down 3-1 in the seventh and two men on, Dustin Pedroia came up and was friggin clutch. He hit a two run single and tied up the game. Then with the score tied in the 8th and runners on first and second, John Farrell pinch hit Mike Carp for Xander Bogaerts and Carp drove in the game winning run with a bloop single to left.
Ill be honest, at the time I was pissed because I wanted to see what Bogaerts would do but in hindsight, John Farrell is a friggin genius. The guy knows more about baseball than I ever will.
This was the tenth time this season that the Red Sox have come from behind after the sixth inning to win a game. Unfortunately, the Tampon Bay Rays also won so the Red Sox lead in the AL East is still at 2.5.
