Really enjoyed my Canada Day!
Beautiful day and I was lovin' Kate Middleton's Canada Day lid! That chick's got it goin on...
The Red Sox beat the Houston Astros 7-5.
Tim Wakefield's knuckleball was floating up to the plate like a beachball. Wake gave-up 11 hits and 5 runs in 5 innings and Boston still emerged victorious!
The Red Sox scored 6 runs in the 7th inning and Adrian Gonzalez hit the go-ahead two-run double for his major leauge-leading 73rd RBI.
The Detroit Tigers lost to the San Francisco Giants 4-3.
In a Battle of the Closers...Papa Grande made more mistakes than Brian Wilson.
Giants closer Wilson blew a save opportunity for the 2nd straight day. Magglio Ordonez hit him up for an RBI single in the 8th inning. San Francisco then scored three runs in the top of the 9th to go ahead 4-1, but Wilson couldn't close it out. He had to be pulled with 1 out - the bases loaded and the score 4-2.
Wilson then had a major meltdown in the dugout - grabbing a Gatorade cooler and throwing it to the ground, beating the bejesus out of it with a bat, before he finally settled down enough to witness Jose Valverde and Brayan Villarreal issue bases-loaded walks to lose the game!
I'm headed over to the game tonight. Hope the rain holds off!
Giants vs Tigers at 7:05 PM. Barry Zito vs Max Scherzer.
