Bullpen only gave up 2 earned runs in 9 innings. The other run was because of errors. They have been excellent in extra inning games.

Fred, Xman saved the day by tying the game...How'd that happen?
This was another one of those games; so happy it turned out the
way it did.
Pedroia has a nasal contusion and is day/day.  For a little guy, he surely
does find ways to hurt himself.
 :P take that Showalter.

14-3 in extras.  I guess that's one thing they're pretty darn good at.   :)

Heard a stat that says that Fister has an era over 9
 in the first two innings
and USUALLY an era of only 1.5 or so in innings AFTER.

Unfortunately, not tonight.
Maybe J F should bring him in to start the 3rd inning ??? iono slap rofl

That was key to this game.  They can be on, or they can stink, but mostly they've been on.  I really thought though that these guys were just going through the motions early on.

Loved Mark's comment about Pedey finding new ways to get hurt.  It's so true!

Just read an article this morning that MLB is on a record pace for HR's this year and probably broke the record as of last night.  The Sox certainly aren't contributing to that, but at the same time they're not striking out at a record pace like everyone else too.

Confession Bear....I went to bed in the eighth inning because I was just plain bushed.  I hoped for the best and you got us that win I asked for.  What do make of our team?  Personally I still can't figure them out.   They looked so inept early on but, give them credit, when they put their mind to it  they don't quit.  Disappointed in Fister again and wonder if he is back to his old haunts, and Pedroia hurt again.  Man, can't that guy stay healthy.  Hope it is only for a game or two because we need him in that lineup.  Bogaerts came through big time and that was pleasing to see.  I caught Benny's see and eye hit (thank God it got through) on the reviews this morning.  Wow!!!!  I was a good win but I have to think it takes a lot out of my colleagues as it does me.  I noticed a few of my friends post some pretty terse comments early on.  The nature of the beast when you root for the Red Sox, but as mark said, A WIN, AND I'LL TAKE IT.
