Two More Wins

BOSTON 4 (15-12) WON 2

DETROIT 3 (12-4)

Another win for the Sox. I like it, I like it a lot. Tim Wakefield gets the win and Keith Foulke had a nice performance for the save. Manny made a great through that ended up getting the go ahead run out in the 6th or 7th inning. The Kevin Youkalis hit the go ahead RBI in the 8th. Good Stuff boys, keep it up. Meanwhile the Yankees continue to look like chumps dropping another one to the D-Rays. In the words of that bully guy from the Simpsons (Nelson I think?), HA-HA!

The boys played a nice Thursday afternoon game today. Always a bonus cause it makes the time go by at work as I watch the game online.

BOSTON 2 (16-12) WON 3

DETROIT 1 (12-15)

What do ya know? Another win! Yeah! Hooray! Bronson Arroyo pitched a great game. He had a no hitter through the middle of the 6th. The only run he gave up was on a homerun. Then in the top of the ninth Big Papi hit a double to center that scored Trot Nixon from first. Keith Foulke came in for the bottom of the ninth and got the Tigers to go down 1-2-3, all on pop-ups. Would have like a few more runs off 12 hits but hey, you can’t get everything you want. A good all around outing for the Sox, most importantly our third win in a row. Four games over .500 is nice too. Did I mention that the Yankees are sucking big time? They are.

The LCT softball team started the regular season today with a win over Rent. We lost all three pre-season games so this was our first win. We needed extra innings to get the win but hey it still counts. We got screwed by the ump several times which was not very cool. He said I bobbled a ball that would have been the third out which was not the case. They went on two get two more runs that inning. I was a little annoyed. Not my best day at the plate. I went 1-3 with a walk. I was up with runners on second and third and nobody out in extra innings. I hit a hard line drive to the third baseman. Bummer. Next time. I really should hit the batting cage sometime and work on my hitting. Had a pretty good day at first base making a couple of good grabs. I like our little softball outings. They are fun. I just wish I could so more with the bat.

Back to Fenway for the Sox and a weekend series with Seatlle.
