I got to watch my 3rd red Sox game of the season for the 3rd day in a row as they played the Indians in newly re-named Progressive Field (Horrible name) The Sox jumped out ahead 2-0 but the Tribe bounced back and chased lester and lead 4-2 going into the 8th before the Sox added a run with Youk's 1st homer. In the 9th Lugo lead off with a double, moved to 3rd on Coco's bunt and tied the game on Pedroia's sac fly. Then Big Papi got his 2nd hit of the game, Jacoby came in to run for him but it could just as well have been Big Papi trotting around the bases as Manny came up and blasted the 1st pitch he saw into the left field stands. Pap came in for the 9th and struck out 2 and got the third out on a long fly ball to Coco in center! Great game!!! Timlin who pitched well in the 8th got the win and Pap got save #5! Lugo, Drew and Crisp are consistent so far and it's Big Papi who has been strugglin' but looks like he may be coming around!
