Walk off

*Picture from*

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.

I said it in my last post...the losses haven't been totally Gagne's fault. We were about to lose the game even if he slammed the door on the Rays in the took Runs....plain and simple. Coco did NOT win the game alone either....The Canadian had a hand in it...but I didn't see fireworks in the reports...and where were the pictures I was looking for of his pitching tonight?? I hate the media...bash him when he's down..but when he gets a pics of his K's??

still searching for my perfect pic ted. I think I scared my neighbors when Coco hit that ball

'Turned out nice, again?'
An old English comedian's catchphrase.

Seemed like a tight, heart-stopping game. Good to see Gagne as the vainqueur. Still doesn't forgive the Baltimore nonsense.

Tomorrow's day game starts at 5 a.m. for me. Might not be around for first pitch. Feel free to start without me!

Ted - Your walk-off wish came true! And you scared the girls AND woke up Trot-O and all was forgiven?- Sign them all up for RSN :)

Tex, the great comeback almost happened again today: got to listen to parts of the game in the car while working, and I thought they'd come back again. But hey, the Yankees lost, so that takes some of the sting away.

Horsham, and while it still doesn't take Baltimore away, it was good to see Tito give him his confidence back: hopefully that'll carry over all year.

Carol, they freaked out, though it happens most every game, so you think they'd be used to it by now!

And trust me, they all are drinking the kool aid with the rest of RSN.

feh...I had meetings and missed the almost take over...the boys sure know how to tease

Ted D said...

I tivo'd the game, but don't want to watch a loss: scratching out 5 runs late in the game was great to see, and you know Daisuke won't gack it up like that every time.
