FINAL: Red Sox 8 Braves 6

The Red Sox finally won a game. Halle-friggin-lujah.

Clay Buchholz absolutely sucked in this game--the dude only lasted three innings, allowed six runs and walked eight--but it didnt even matter thanks to David Ortiz. His three run home run in the fifth inning tied the game and his sacrifice fly in the seventh put the Red Sox ahead and in the end, the Red Sox beat the first place (in the NL East) Braves 8-6.

What's encouraging is that the Red Sox were down 6-1 at one point in this game and very easily could have just sat on their asses, mailed it in and gave up.  But they didnt.  They played like they gave a shit...and now the losing streak that has been pissing me off for the past 11 days is over.  And that is wicked pissa.
