That's more like it

CLEVELAND 2 (41-35)
BOSTON 5 (45-32) WON 1
The boys got back into the groove yesterday afternoon with a nice win. The offense was highlighted by back to back homeruns in the 6th. Mirabelli had a two run shot and Bellhorn had a solo shot. That was all the boys needed to wrap up the win.
Wakefield has definitely gotten back into his grove and had another nice outing yesterday. My nerves, as I am sure was the rest of Red Sox nation, were a little edgey when he left the game and the pen took over. Manatei was a little rocky but got through a whole inning without any trouble. Timlin came in as the closer. The Tribe managed to get the game-tieing run to the plate in the 9th but couldn't do anything about it.
Foulke made some comments about how he wasn't worried about what the random fan who works at Burger King felt after he blew the loss. He was more worried about his teammates. Dirt Dogs had a field day with that which was quite funny.
Schilling had a rehab start in some tiny stadium in Charlotte and had a great day. The NESN guys were preparing everyone for him to give up a homer or two because of the park but he only gave up one run. He looked great and everyone was very excited. If his next Rehab start goes well sounds like he might pitch in Baltimore against the O's next weekend.
A week from today I get to see the Sox play the O's. Hooorrray.
Off day today then tomorrow night soon-to-be-allstar Clement pitches against the Blue Bird People.
Zach has a great blog. Today was at least the second time that he has made me laugh out loud with his made up conversations between various Sox players and managers. Today there is a great conversation between Theo and Foulke. Funny stuff.
