Bizarre Game 3 of the ALDS
Wow, this started as a real, sloppy first five innings and has now turned into an epic.
Not sure what Kerwin Danley saw on that 3-2 pitch by K-Rod to Mike Lowell. It appeared to be right down the middle. Oh well, Lowrie took a good rip before lining to right.
Paul Byrd will be next out of the ‘pen unless the Red Sox can walk off with a win before that.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, baseball throws you a curveball. A three-run single? How is this possible?
The Red Sox were pretty lucky to have those three runs because Josh Beckett was extremely shaky.
It’s just weird, he hasn’t been right for any sustained length of time all year. I think at the end of the year, we might learn of some undisclosed injuries that he had to pitch through. Just a gut feeling. You don’t lose location and velocity like that. I know, he had the elbow inflammation. But I wonder what else might have been going on.
Saunders means business tonight. Could we be back here at Fenway again tomorrow?
Other tidbits: Dustin Pedroia, as of 12:04 p.m., remains 0-for-the series … Hopefully they can find a spot for J.D. Drew in this game … Lowell is also 0-for-the series and it’s going to continue to be an interesting decision for Tito whether to play him … How did the Pats look today? I barely saw it? … Youk just belted one off the wall . Where would this team be without him? Tie ballgame again… And hours after Youk tied it, it’s still tied.
At any rate, chime away!
