***FINAL SCORE*** Red Sox 2 Orioles 1...FIRST PLACE AGAIN

It's now going to the bottom of the eighth inning at Fenway in the last game before the break. Okie and Little Manny got though the top of the seventh after Daisuke threw too many pitches through six, but gave up zero runs. Little Manny got his four outs, so now it's going into the bottom of the 8th...still 2-0 with Paps coming in for the ninth. Three outs to go for the Birdies...tweet tweet?

TOP OF THE NINTH...Paps on the mound...Millar at the plate...97 MPH strike one...98 MPH foul ball...strike two...Cora makes a catch..ONE OUT...
Roberts up..strike one...1-1...1-2...foul on a 98mph fastball...BASE HIT...one on, one out.
RAYS LOSE TO CLEVELAND...first place is ours for the taking...BASE HIT by Adam Jones....wow.
The count is 0-2...2-2...STRIKE THREE!! 98 MPH up and away fastball...
Huff up...1-0, 1-1, 1-2, ONE STRIKE AWAY! BASE HIT, with two outs!!!!!! It seems too often that Paps is one strike away, and then...
Moore at the plate...1-0...

*****FINAL...SOX WIN 2-1***** FIRST PLACE again going into the All Star Break. Phew!!

A full wrap coming up first thing in the morning.

I'll be honest, I did not think the Sox were going to be in 1st place going into the break. When they dropped the last two to the Skanks I thought for sure it was going to be a battle for the Wild Card, but my how a week can change things.

The ninth was a little hairy, though, WPD.
