First, some seventh inning leftovers: both Mark Teixeira and Vlad Guerrero are 3-for-3 against the Sox tonight. Only eight players have ever gone 3-for-3 or 4-for-4 against the Sox in the postseason, and never two in one game. (Ga-ry! Ga-ry!) The bases-loaded walk issued by Justin Masterson was the...

After coming on for Justin Masterson following a leadoff triple from Chone Figgins , Jonathan Papelbon got Garrett Anderson to swing at the first pitch and pop it up for one out. But Mark Teixeira's fly ball to center proved plenty deep enough to score Figgins, knotting up the game at 5-5. Vlad...

David Ortiz is leading off an inning for the second time tonight. Before you start thinking about putting the speedster at the top of the order because of his obvious ability to set the table understand these numbers the DH has when kicking off a frame: In his 86 plate appearances, Ortiz is hitting...

Did you know that all seven runs in the game have come with two outs? You should because my man Alex just told you in the previous post. Colleague Mike Petraglia (Where's Trags? Probably in his living room breaking down some Pats stats) texted asking if it was Patriots decision-maker Scott Pioli...

The Angels opened the fifth with back-to-back walks by Mark Teixeira and Vlad Guerrero, and then Torii Hunter lined a full-count single to left to plate the Halos' third run of the game. Still no outs in the bottom of the fifth, and Manny Delcarmen is ready in the Boston bullpen.

Torii Hunter moved well enough in tracking down a leadoff liner to center, showing no ill effects from his ill-advised hopping-mad display in the bottom of the third. Hunter has an injury history against the Sox, having once broken his ankle while chasing a fly ball to the Triangle in Fenway Park ...

Chone Figgins busted out of his post-season doldrums by singling Juan Rivera , who had led off the fourth inning with a walk. Jeff Mathis , who blooped a single into left field, advanced to third. Figgins had been 0 for 7 in the series before the hit, having entered the night 11 for 66 in the...
