GAME 50: RED SOX vs. INDIANS

Colleen, Ambiana, Gaelen and me paddle over to the island in the canoe and spent the night. Gaelen and I took turns listening to the game on the Walkman as Colleen didn't want her peace and quiet interrupted by a ballgame.

Trot Nixon returned to Fenway last night with the Cleveland Indians and got a real big hand from the crowd. He singled on his first at bat but despite that the Sox took a 3-0 lead on doubles from Drew and Lowell and a solo home run by Manny.

Then Youk created a lot of excitement with an inside-the-park-home run. I did my little dance around the fire, yippee. It was 5-2 in the 9th. Pap walked the first batter then gave up a single and a double making the score 5-3 with the tying run on 2nd and no outs but he got the next batter to pop up and struck out the next two for his 13th save and Schill's 5th win


Youk's inside-the-park homer!!
