Down 1-0 going into the 9th, I gotta admit I was worried. After Mikey hit the home run that tied the game, I was concerned for a different reason.
After I had fist pumped my way around the house, and in the process scared Angie and Ciera out of their minds and woke up Trot, I was worried I would spend the night sleeping in the living room.
I'm proud to say that once Angie realized it was a Sox related incident, all was forgiven, and I'm allowed back into the master bedroom
Jon Lester pitched his tail off, giving up only 1 run through 7 innings: MDC and Timlin worked the scoreless 8th, and once the 9th inning arrived, enter Eric Gagne.
Guess who got the win tonight? Gagne. After the disaster that was Camden Yards this weekend, Eric the Red ended up striking out the side, with a double mixed in, to work a scoreless inning. Talk about Karma: dude was booed on his way to the mound, and ends up slamming the door, setting up the bottom of the 9th inning heroics.
Mikey hits a bomb over the Monster, Tek bangs a double over the wall, and the man with the bitchen' fro hits a laser that scores the Captain: cue "Dirty Water".
The icing on top of the cake? The MFY's got WAXED by Baltimore 12-0 at the Toilet.
5 game lead. Yankee fans back to freaking out. And the Red Sox walk off with the win.
