Manny Ramirez's fourth inning home run was the 452nd of his career, tying him with Carl Yastrzemski and Jim Thome for 29th place on the all-time list. ... The Sox have signed their top pick in the June 6 draft, 18-year-old outfielder Jason Place. ... Alex Cora gets a start at shortstop tonight.

How dumb was Joe Morgan last night? Zach tells you. My favourite? "Maybe Seanez tried to wake up the Red Sox by giving up that home run [to Francoeur]." ... Maybe we should start calling Rudy "No-Doz"?

Chris Snow, Globe:
The Sox now have 22 come-from-behind wins, second most in baseball to the Brewers (24). The Yankees, meanwhile, have 20 blown-lead losses, second most in baseball to the Devil Rays (25). The Sox are 9-4 in games decided after the seventh. The Yankees are 7-12.
New York lost yesterday -- and dropped one game behind Boston -- when Ryan Zimmerman hit a game-winning, two-run home run off Chien-Ming Wang.

I love the fact that as of right now, because of rounding, Pap's ERA will not get any lower by pitching another scoreless inning.

And if you point out every Morganism in a Sunday night baseball game, you're never going to follow the game.
