I didn’t watch the entire game. After the Sox went up 6-1 I thought we had it. Floyd on the mound, a significant lead, the game was in the bag.
But as the Twins do best, they chipped, and chipped, and tied, and there, the guy hitting two something with RISP singles-in the winning run.
Sure there was another blown call by the umpiring crew (third in the game, if I believe the threads in the sox blogosphere).
This time around, however, the biggest of the Sox flaws was front and center. No bullpen. Technically, the Sox are still in it but now they have to regain the lead they once had. And that’s only if the Twins are willing to relinquish it.
As I noted in my first post previewing this series, the Twinkies have been a better hitting team than the Sox; and in all honesty, it surprises me that this didn’t happen earlier in the latter half of the season.
As much as I hate to admit that the Sox don’t deserve it, we’re still tied in the loss column. Let’s go!!
