The co-worker I quit smoking with caved in today. I almost did several on several occasions. For some reason I didn’t. Whodathunkit??
Tomorrow is another day, the haze is starting to clear and so are my lungs.
WORLD SERIES GAME TWO
Well it turns out tomorrow is another day for the Rays too. I really didn’t expect last night’s loss to weigh too heavy on the their minds. They needed to just forget about it and move on.
It’s a best of seven series, and you play them one game at at time.
The Rays came out with bells on ready to roll just like the Phillies the night before.
Why wouldn’t they, it’s their house.
<—— Iwamura and Upton come across the plate first to put the Rays two up in the first inning.
That’s not good.
Bottom of the second, BJ Upton singles to right field and scores Dioner Navaro.
Rays up three.
Bottom of the fourth,
<—-Jason Bartlett scores Cliff Floyd——-> on a sacrifice bunt.
Rays up four to zip.
James Shields gets the job done allowing only seven hits with no runs scored in a little over six innings.
He may not be able to throw a punch, but he can throw a hell of a fastball and he wasn’t afraid to make use it.
Don’t feel too bad James, Coco Crisp used to be a boxer.
Just stick to swinging a bat brotha. Pitchers seem to need some help in that department.
Finally, top of the eighth, Eric Bruntlett hits a homer to left field and the Phillies are on the board.
At least it’s not a shutout.
Jason Werth reaches first on a fielding error and manages to score Carlos Ruiz. That would be the last run scored in this game.
Maybe there really is something to the mohawk thing?? I’ll never know.
Rays strike back and zap the Phillies 4-2. Series is now tied. Now we take this to Philadelphia.
That’s a good thing.
I’m sure nobody’s asking for more cowbell in Pennsylvania tonight.
