GAME 27: RED SOX vs. MARINERS

This is the make up game for the rain out on April 12th and my mom had tickets, I called her on Monday but she had given away the extra one. i was a bit sad but should've told her 2 weeks ago I could go. As it was Colleen, Ambiana, Gaelen and me walked over to Holyoke for a festival and rode the merry go round for free. I took my walkman and listened to the game as we walked home. When DiceK melted down in the 1st I was consoled a bit that I was not there but by the time we were back across the river and Gaelen and I were watching a softball game at the park the Sox had it tied up 5-5 by the bottom of the second and I was wishing I was there but glad my momma was at a good game.

Back home listening in the bedroom before nighty-night for Ambiana we did a little dance as Manny smacked a two run homer in the 4th to put the Sox up 7-5. Seattle battled back at the top of the 5th scoring two runs and thats the way it stood till the 8th when Manny smacked home run #5 over the Monster for the go ahead and eventual winning run. What an awesome game for my Mom to be at. I talked to her this morning and she said Manny must have known she would be there to hit to home runs like that and the game winner to boot!
