Baseball, Red Sox Patriot's Day Style
Buchholz has thrown many pitches so far, but it's the bottom of the 2nd, bases loaded for the Sox, Jacoby coming to the plate. No Manny in the game!! Zip zip is the score. 0-2 to Ells..2 outs..and BOTH teams leave the bases loaded. After two. 0-0. I'll be back.
Clay is not sharp...but he has rallied after walking the first man in the 3rd...1 out..and 2 outs..Milton Bradley with a fly to right...it was caught by JD..base hit by Blalock...men on first and second..ouch! 2 down....TEK is out to the mound with a 2-0 count. C'mon Clay! Fly to right, and after two and a half innings, it's still zip to zip. Bottom ofthe third, and Gabbard is out of the game after warming up...a back problem...bottom of the 3rd inning coming up. The Texas 'pen is VULNERABLE!
Pitching for the Rangers..Nippert. 11.37era. Jacoby up..ball 4..I do not know why Manny isn't in there, but Peds is up and Papi to follow..stolen base by Ells..base hit by Peds..first and third with no one out! Papi time..and he strikes out..one down with our Youk at the plate...a golden opportunity for the leading hitter in baseball...and a HUGE base running gaffe by Ells after a fly to center by Youk. Double play, and after three, gee, still zip zip. THAT WAS UGLY.
I have to take a lunch break...(type one diabetes), but I will be back. Promise. WAIT! First and third, runnners at 1st and 3rd...Lugo up...BASE HIT. 1-0 Good Guys in the bottom of the 4th. Manny is resting, TEK is sick, Coco is hurt (as always). And we go on...1-1 to Cash, while my grill is heating..the Sox need a couple more because Buch will not be able to pitch more than one inning..Lowrie scores on an errant throw.. ERROR. 2-0...lunch beckons..I have to. And still our Sox keep it going. Ells steals 2nd..PEDS powers one to the triangle!! 4-0 SOX! Be back soon...now I can smile.
*********OVER EASY********* JUST like fried eggs, the game is over and the Sox won easily. Full wrap tomorrow early AM
