A.L. Division Series Game 3 – Angels 7, Red Sox 6

Red Sox 12, Indians 7
After sitting through three straight losses – in the rain, cold, and wind – earlier in the week, I was coming down with a cold.  As for the Red Sox, they were faring better now that the Blue Jays had left town and [...]

No Laughing Matter

A Devil of a Game

Thursday, September 17, 2009 – Fenway Park, Section 43
Angels 4, Red Sox 3
By the time I got to Fenway for my next game, the Red Sox were riding a 7-game winning streak, including a dramatic come-from-behind win the night before which ended on Alex Gonzalez’s walk-off single.  During that time, they had opened up a [...]
