After looking like they were hitting in a home-run derby, the Sox failed to produce and lost the second game on a walk-off single in the 9th. These things happen, you know. All is not lost, Sox fans. We were tied for the lead, now we’re one game back. If we take the rubber match, we’ll be tied again. We’ll also have split the series overall with the Rays.
I would rather lose a one-run game on a bit of shakey pitching then my ace be clobbered by 6 home runs and giving up 9 earned runs in just three innings (ehem, Kazmir). Becks had a stellar game, the offense just couldn’t produce in the second one.
Also, congrats to Jason Bay, who welcomes a daughter, Evelyn Jane. Yay! Tonight, Wake takes the mound tonight. Go Sox!
