Well, it had to happen eventually. A run was finally scored off of Jon Papelbon, formerly of the 0.00 ERA. Unfortunately it came during a tie game and gave the Jays the go-ahead run in the top of the 9th inning for a 7-6 lead.

Even so, it looked like the Baseball Gods were going to smile upon the Sox in the bottom of the 9th. On what should have been the final pitch of the inning, the ball got past the Jay's catcher and Dustan Mohr was able to take 1st base.

Pinch runner Harris then came in, stole second and was able to take third when the throw to 2nd wound up in the outfield. Now all of a sudden there's a man on 3rd and I'm thinking to myself that after enduring the rain and cold all night, Iain, who flew all the way to Boston from France to catch this one in person, is going to get to see a hell of an ending to this game. Unfortunately it was not to be. Tek struck out to end the game and that was that. Damn.

Once again, Beckett was not sharp last night. I'm not sure what's going on but it seems like the last few games he has not had the focus and intensity that he had displayed in his earlier starts. Eck's description of his performance as 'mediocre' in the post game was a perfect summation. The Sox left a ton of guys on base last night as well.

After going 3-6 on the last road trip, it's been a long time since we won a series. Toronto is a tough team this year. Hopefully Matty Clement can get the Sox back on track tonight.

You're right - I didn't see a hell of an ending, but it was still a helluva night! :-)

Sounds like you jammed a lot in during the trip. Good to hear. Even though the game did not turn out on a win, I'm sure it will still be a good memory :)
