Jonny Gomes was 0-9 in the World Series coming into this game and wasn’t even supposed to be in the lineup. If youve been living under a rock and didn’t know, Shane Victorino was a last minute scratch and Jonny Gomes was penciled into the lineup to take his place.
And the dude ended up hitting a 3-run home run in the sixth inning that gave the Red Sox the lead and buried the Cardinals in Game 4. This guy is a friggin gamer.
In probably the most talked about game of his career, Clay Buchholz was about what I expected. The dude only lasted 4 innings, threw 66 pitches, allowed three hits and one unearned run. Bla. David Ortiz continued to tear the shit out of the ball. He went 3 for 3 and is now batting .727 this series.
It wasn’t as humiliating as the bullshit obstruction call the night before, but you must admit it was pretty sweet seeing the game end with Kolton Wong getting picked off first base and Carlos Beltran at the plate. I mean, that is just friggin embarrassing.
Anyway, the Red Sox are two wins away from winning the World Series. And with the series tied up 2-2, if they do win the whole damn thing, they will win it at Fenway Park. Seriously, let that sink in for a second. The Red Sox have the chance to win the World Series at home. You thought the streets around Fenway Park were crazy back in 2004 and 2007? Christ, I cant even imagine what it may be like.
