G147: Red Sox 11, Orioles 5

Red Sox - 020 001 350 - 11 17  0
Orioles - 110 100 002 - 5 12 1
After six innings of back-and-forth lead changes, the Red Sox scored eight runs in the space of 15 batters in the late innings.

J.D. Drew drove in four of those eight runs; three of them came on his 21st home run of the year in the eighth. Brian Anderson followed that dong with one of his own. David Ortiz had two doubles, Mike Lowell went 3-for-4, and Josh Reddick hit his second major league home run in the second.

Lester (6-10-3-0-4, 102) was not sharp, giving up a run on a double and two singles to start the Baltimore first, and allowing solo homers to Ty Wigginton and Melvin Mora -- each of which lead off an inning. Manny Delcarmen allowed consecutive shots to Wigginton and Felix Pie to begin the ninth.
Example
Jon Lester (3.29, 143 ERA+) / David Hernandez (5.40, 86 ERA+)

Amalie Benjamin, Globe:
On Sept. 6, Jon Lester allowed the Chicago White Sox no runs in seven innings. Since then, Red Sox starters have allowed three runs or fewer in 11 straight games, their longest such streak since they reeled off 12 in June 2006. The Sox are 9-2 over the span, a stretch during which they seized control of the American League wild-card race.
Example
Angels/Rangers at 7 and Yankees/Mariners at 10.

IMAC

BBQ and Foot Massages.
What a combo!
There is a place in Mocksville, which is about 20 minutes from me, that always makes me laugh when I go by. It's an old bait and tackle shop. And they have tanning beds.
HA!
If I'm a woman interested enough in my appearance to bother going somwhere and lying on a tanning bed, that's esackly where I want to go! Down to the local bait and tackle shop to say hi to the old fishermen before I go in. Can you say hidden cameras?

Good win. It was fun sitting at the bar following the bottom-screen score bar go by. It was a 1 or 2 run game when I sat down. It seemed like every time the Sox score rolled by they had added more.
Keep on Trucking
