Red Sox - 000 000 301 - 4 8 0 Blue Jays - 041 000 11x - 7 11 1Sitting out behind the Red Sox bullpen in right field, we (Laura, Tim, and I) were feeling alright after Boston rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh (helped out by LBJ's second double of the night). That sense of hopefulness was snuffed out in part by Eric Thames's solo home run in the bottom half of the frame. It first hit in the section to our right, caromed far over our heads and landed in the section to our left. I checked Buffyvision to see how much screen time we got.
Here we are (far left of picture) watching Jason Varitek's ninth-inning home run land in the second deck.
These last two losses were especially annoying because the Yankees lost two extra-inning games to the Orioles at the same time. New York lost 5-4 in 10 innings this afternoon as Baltimore put up a cool binary linescore:
