26-0

26-0........that's the record the Boston Red Sox have when scoring 5 runs or more. The first place Boston Red Sox, I should say. Yesterday it was Tim Wakefield's turn to benefit from a patented Red Sox run explosion. This time it happened in the 6th inning, just after a 3 run 5th put the Rangers up 4-2. BOOM! ZAP! Fueled by hits from Youkilis, who is now proud owner of an 18 game hit streak, Manny, who had 4 hits and looked so good at the plate, and Coco Crisp, the Sox struck back. Bigtime. And by the way, when is JD Drew going to start hitting? No one knows, but I hope it's soon. After the outburst it was 7-4 Sox, and the 'pen, in the form of Lopez, Donnelly and a save-earning Papelbon, took over from there. Game over. Go home Rangers. Don't let the door hit ya where the Lord split ya!! The Sox win and move to a staggering 33-15. Here's a little Manny-ness from the Herald. Hark the heralded upcoming hot streak? We all hope so. Read this.....

"In two games of this series against the Rangers, Ramirez is 6-for-8 with a triple, two doubles, three singles and two walks. He has reached in 8-of-10 plate appearances and came within a homer of the cycle last night."


Peter here...those are sweet words and stats. And there was yet even more great news yesterday. Josh "Baseball" Beckett is all set to start against Trot Nixon and his Cleveland Indians on Tuesday. The Indians will be facing our top three pitchers, so it would be extra nice to see Tavarez spin another good one today. The Darkman didn't work yesterday, so he'll be ready to do what he does best whenever he's needed.
So on this eve of Memorial Day 2007 everything is good for the team we love to love. Please say a prayer for all those men and women who are overseas serving their nation. By doing so, they make us proud.
And click on that oh so nice title above for something more on the game. Something Boston Herald-ish. From Tony Massarotti. Enjoy your Sunday, and don't forget this. 3pm baseball coming up. We go for the sweep.

Isn't that amazing when scoring 5 runs! Manny may do that on his own he's getting so hot! Let's go JD....

I know....with Youk torrid, and everyone else hitting his share, the number 5 batter becomes even more important. I'm sure JD feels the pressure, and he WILL respond. I mean, everything's going so well, and I'm not one of those who thinks that impending doom is just around the corner. I try to be optimistic.....and the Sox '07 are making it easy! So go JD, and Tavie today...Darkman is ready in the 'pen to snuff out our opponents. Rested AND ready!
FB, have a great holiday, and thanks.
And Michael, I am happy to type this.....yes, they are! I feel bad for....wait, I feel bad for no one whose fortunes are melded with those of the Yanks.

It's nice waking up as a Red Sox fan and seeing the Yankees 11.5 games out of first.

Ian, you are so right. Maybe more? We'll know before 6! And then the nation rises and gives Trot what he so deserves. But first things first...Texas baseball at 3. Thanks for the comment!

And now, at a little after 1pm EDT, the Yanks are playing, plus it's less than 2 hours before our Sox start another victory...I hope. Thanks Jess, and Ian. And ML......go Julian..wow, I REALLY said that! It feels and smell like the beach here, and that's a good thing....
And then, tomorrow..... it's TROT TIME, with his Indians! Lunch time now...bye! P

Hey peter - great blog you have here. I will link to you, if you link to mine (even though I'm a Mets-focused blog, we still have nothing but hate for the Skanks!). Later
