Yesterday afternoon I had the wonderful privilege of attending the rubber game with the Tigers at Fenway. I still haven’t decided which was better: seeing one of my personal favorites, Bill Mueller blast one over the Green Monster or seeing Big Papi launch one to the farthest part of the field over the bullpens!
Maybe it was staying late after the game to catch the guys leaving in their snazzy cars…of course nothing tops Trot Nixon waving at me from his Mini Cooper 🙂
All in all it was a good win. Wells had a strong outing despite running up his pitch count very early in the game. The bats really came alive in the sixth inning and from there it was smooth sailing for reliever Chad Bradford and youngster Abe Alvarez, who came in and closed out the ninth.
Only negative of the day: the Yankees won so we’re still only a game and half ahead…hold on guys because September’s here and things are gonna get really good!!
