After a very shaky game 3, the Red Sox finally put away the Angels in the bottom of 9th inning… talk about dramatics! I thought we were doing ok during the 7th… we were up by 2 and Lester was still going strong. However, the bullpen kinda choked, but thanks to new guys Jed Lowery and Jason Bay, we were able to squeek on by for the win!
I’m glad it didn’t go to game 5, as I have lost a lot of sleep this past week watching the games…. I can finally rest easy, at least until Friday! Dice-K gets to pitch again, so hopefully he gets a little more support from the offense this time than in game 2. I also hope that the bullpen comes out a little stronger and lives up to thier Black Pearl nickname!
The Red Sox defeated the Angels 4-1 last night in game 1 of the ALDS. I actually stayed up into the wee hours of the night (stupid west coast games!) watching when I should have been studying a little harder. Lester played a great game on top of an already superb season.
I’m glad Jason Bay came through and opened the door for the offense… can we say, “Manny who?”
I hope they can continue the momentum into the next couple of games. Dice-K pitches on Friday, then Beckett on Sunday. Hopefully we can shut down the Angels 1-2-3, because after Sunday, I think our pitching gets a little weak (and Beckett is supposedly not at full strength)…
