One Good Implosion Deserves Another

One day after the Orioles finally showed up at a game and embarrassed the Sox bullpen, they implode themselves. Granted, it wasn't a 9 run deficit that the Sox had relinquished, but the O's squandered a 4 run lead in the top of the 9th, allowing the Sox to tie the game, and eventually win in the top of the 11th inning.
Drew, Pedroia, and Ellsbury all had 2 hit games, while Youk hit a 2 run blast, his 14th of the season. Josh Beckett was not quite the kick ass commander he's been of late, as he allowed 6 H's, 2 BB's, 2 HR's, and 5 ER's over 7 innings. Bard tossed 2 scoreless innings, striking out 4. Ram-Ram gets the win, and Papelbon tossed a 1-2-3 11th for his 20th save one day after earning his 2nd BS of the season.

Hey O's fans? How do you like dem apples?

It was a great win...that we needed emotionally to kind of put the loss the night before behind us. In many ways, I think getting down and out...and then coming back made the win take on more meaning than if we had run away with it.

We also needed the win...because those pesky Yanks keep pulling off win after win. So, when we play the O's...we gotta beat the O's.
