ALDS Game 1- Red Sox 4 Angels 1

I drove into Montepelier last night at 9:30pm to watch the 1st game of the ALDS between the Sox and the Angels in Anaheim. It was not much fun, my barmate was not interested in chatting and the bartender made an ugly face when he took my last $3 for a beer. I stayed til 11:30am with the Sox trailing 1-0 on a Lowrie error. Listening in the car on the way home Jason Bay slammed a 2 run homer to put the Sox ahead and I listened to the end of the game snuggled on the couch in the living room.

The Sox added 2 more runs in the 8th and won 4-0. Lester pitched out of jams early and was dominating the last 3 innings he pitched. Masterson worked a scoreless 8th and Paplebon struck out the side in the ninth for the win.

Ellsbury regained his swing in September and went 3-5 with 2 singles, a double, 2 stolen bases, a spectacular catch and a run scored. Yippeeee!
