Winners of three straight and nine of eleven, Boston looks to earn a winning record on the season with Felix Doubront facing the Orioles at Camden.  Comment away.

Yeah, the game went off as of that homer. I don’t care overly much if they can win tomorrow. I just don’t want this to be another “over .500, haha, just kidding!” tease.

MOTHERFUCKER. Sox get the run back and Bard instantly gives the O’s the lead again on the Nick Fucking Johnson homer. Then plunks the next guy. Jesus H. Fuck.

5-2 Sox after top 6. Homers by Nava and Shoppach with 2 out (and a base hit by Podsednik indicating the end times are near).
Surprised Bard only faced Jones in the 6th. I guess Valentine saw Bard was not that great today and with a day off tomorrow (finally, after 20 games in a row), he’s going for broke.

5-4 after a walk and homer (Nick Johnson again) from Andrew Miller (who’s been really good in relief up till now, so I won’t mentally crush his windpipe just yet) with 2 out.

Broken-bat double down the line in left. Bah. The tying run coming in feels inevitable…just hope it’s not the winning run too and that Ortiz is feeling good next inning.

Down 0-2 pretty quick (though Johnson fidgeting in and out of the box).
Pitch 3…does not catch the inside corner as hoped for, the ball was half in the strike zone according to NESN’s ball-tracking machine.
He strikes out swinging on a pitch up and in on the next one. Niiiice.

2-0 to Flaherty (of the .140-something average, ya kiddin’ me?).
2-1 on a foul.
2-2 on a “strike” up and away, but the ump has been doing that all game, so whatevs.

Dribbler down the liiiine…rolls foul, shoot.
Still, 0-2. Ace talks shop with Shop, soon after delivers. Foul again.
Nubber in front of the plate, slightly toward first. Shoppach clears the runner and throws Wieters out.

Slow, slow roller to 2nd, Pedroia grabs it and has to throw very hard to get the runner, but does!
.500 (third time’s the charm to get over the hump?, Lester vs. Price Friday, hot) and an off-day coming on a series win over the first-place team. Good stuff. Rooting for the Jays elsewhere (though they are the best team in the division by run differential as of yesterday, I think), but they did not score in the top 9 and TB is swinging now.

Never a problem, gerb.
Pena out at the plate in the bottom of the 9th for out #3 is goooooood shit.
1 down for the Jays. Encarnacion batting.
