So the Cards escaped from Beantown with a split which is the best you can expect realistically and now we await a squirrel attack.
Did I say I had retired that video? No, I said I needed a Red Sox video that was shorter than No, No, Nannette. It’s an entirely different thing altogether.
It’s an entirely different thing.
Thank you. I’m here all week. Have I mentioned I do weddings, bar mitzvas, and funerals?
Oh, how did we get here?
Top of the 4th in Fenway, Leadoff Triple then a line Out and an RBI Sacrifice. Cards on the Board 1 – 0. Bottom 6th 1 On (Walk) 1 Out. Ortiz, Mighty Ortiz, hits a 2 RBI Shot, 2 – 1 Sox. Next half 2 On 1 Out rare Double Steal, runners at 2nd and 3rd. Walked full. 2 RBI Sacrifice/Error, RBI Single. Cards 4 – 2, Series knotted at 1.
It was really much more exciting than that.
Tonight we have Jake Peavy (12 – 5, 4.17 ERA R) against Joe Kelly (10 – 5, 2.69 ERA R). Peavy is a loser, 1 decision in 2 Games post-season, 8 runs off 10 hits in 8 and 2 3rds innings for an ERA of 8.31. Kelly is also a loser, 1 decision in 3 Games post-season, 9 runs off 18 hits in 16 and a 3rd for an ERA of 4.41.
So I expect it will be an exciting game (meaning not a (yawn) pitching duel).
