Home field advantage gone for the Angels.
Yeah was nice to watch the Red Sox win.
Nice way to open the series. I just hope they do a better job of hitting with RISP from here on out.
I only caught the game from about the 6th inning on. So I pretty much missed all the shaky hitting.
I am deliriously happy.
I think the Red Sox pitchers are trying to give this game away by walking the entire Angels lineup.
Beckett at Fenway next!
Francona made some questionable bullpen moves but Drew came through in the 9th.
Hopefully the Sox can finish off the angels at home and set up an AL East showdown in the ALCS.
I know he's been hurt, but I couldn't feel more secure if you told me Classic Pedro was pitching.
Agree 100%. Nice to see the Sox light up F-Raud in the playoffs...again
Who is F-Raud?
Francisco Rodriguez. Wormie doesn't care for him much.
And Coco scores from first on a sharp single up the middle. lol @ the Angels.
3 runners on base... and we go on to the 11th inning. Thanks, Lowry.
At least Rodriguez threw a ton of pitches. If our bullpen holds, we should be able to hammer him (or his successor) when our big sluggers come up in either 11 or 12.
K-Rod gone, Jered Weaver in... but into the 12th inning. Great game, at least!
I believe in Jon Lester.
Yup, the real ace of the staff takes the mound tonight. Wouldn't be necessary though if Pedroia cound get 1 FREAKING HIT this series.
if Pedroia cound get 1 FREAKING HIT this series.
He has now
Congrats to the Red Sox! Up next, the Rays - should be a great series!
JED LOWRIE!!! I shall now call him Lil Papi.
The way Papi hit in this series you should be calling him 'Lil Papi'
Great win by the team though. Francona should have his head examined for lifting Lester AND pulling the hook way too soon on Okijima. Masterson was just brutal. Unless it's mop-up duty in a blowout, I hope he doesn't make his way out of the pen again any time soon.
Glad to see MVPedroia finally get a hit, and a big one at that.
