Well, that hurt.

Down 4-1, our boys rally in the 8th to take a 5-4 lead. Anecdotally it feels like that never happened last year. I know that it did, but it feels like this team is more capable of a 4 run rally despite being 10th in the AL in offense.

And then Eddie blows another save in the 9th. Another 2 out homer actually, just like Boston and home against the Sox. Brilliant. I gotta think even Hargrove will take him out of ninth innings for a while and try to let him work things out in less dire circumstances. Or not.

Weird note, Cliff Politte intentionally walked Ibanez in the 8th to get to Sexson. What was interesting was that the he hit 79 on the gun on one toss to the catcher. I immediately thought of two things here. First, big league pitchers play catch at 80 mph! And that's faster than a Jamie Moyer change-up.
