G158: Red Sox 5, Devil Rays 1

Curt Schilling (7-5-1-4-9, 101) allowed a first-inning run, but David Ortiz tied the game with his 54th home run of the year in the third.

Then, with two outs and Jason Varitek at second in the fourth inning, Eric Hinske doubled to left-center (2-1), Alex Cora tripled into the triangle (3-1), Kevin Youkilis walked, Mark Loretta walked, and Ortiz singled to left-center (5-1).

Tizzle finished the night 3-for-4 with 3 RBI. Hinske was also 3-for-4.

The Tigers beat the Blue Jays 4-3, so we're back in second place.

I hope you'll post about the Fox/Ruth tribute. I thought that was really nice.

Oh by the way, Red Sox, would it kill you to win a game that we go to?? Maybe next year, eh?

Jeez, this winning thing is easy. Get 7 strong innings from your starter, the bullpen does its job, a couple of clutch hits, the defense catches the ball ... nothing to it.

In other news, while Foulke was pitching, a clip was aired of Tito talking about Keith being "the forgotten man" this season and how important he was "back when we were good." Terry, Terry, a little frustation showing?

In other, other news, Curt on 'eei right now saying he didn't mean to say "If" in the post game interview. He'll be back next year. Back to your muffins, folks.
