I caught the top of the seventh of Game 1 between work and home. Even if the game meant nothing, it was nice to hear Joe C calling the game.

Game 2: Red Sox 1-0.

Now in the first real fake game, we've got the Twins scoring in all innings from 1-6. So we've got a shot at the holy exhibition grail, but short of that, if we can force the Twins to bat in the 9th and hold them scoreless the rest of the way, they'd have the pattern-rific linescore of

222 111 000

And it ends up:

222 111 00x

(Also, Sox score 3 in 3rd, 4 in 4th.)

And FY with the GS.
