Thanks, Sox...Love, the Twins

September 27 vs LA Angels


Sox Office Smash Hit:
Angels in the Outfield
But it looks like the angels were helping out the Sox today

Short Take:  Angels' playoff hopes fade into the right field seats when Nicky Delmonico's homer gives Sox 6-4 win in extras.

The Angels really wanted to win tonight's game. A loss for the Angels meant that they were eliminated from post-season play, and that the Twins were going to the playoffs. I'm sure the Twins were watching intently from Cleveland, where they were in town for a series against the Indians. They had to stay up an extra inning for Nicky Delmonic to hit a walk-off – but, you're welcome, Twins (and sorry, Angels).

The Sox drew first blood in the 4th inning. Jose Abreu singled to lead off. Avi Garcia struck out, but Nicky Delmonico doubled to the center field wall and Abreu motored all the way from first to score, just beating the throw. With Delmonico on 2nd, Tyler Saldino walked. Omar Narvaez singled to load the bases with 1 out for Willy Garcia. Garcia hit a high chopper right in front of the plate, and catcher Martin Moldanado inexplicably left home plate uncovered to get the ball. Thanks, Moldanado! He threw out Garcia at 1st, but the run scored and it was 2-0 Sox. A few pitches later, Garrett Richards let loose a wild pitch, scoring Delmonico and advancing the runners. With the score 3-0 Sox, Adam Engel walked, and that was the end of Garrett Richards. Engel stole 2nd and with runners on 2nd and 3rd with 2 out, Tim Anderson flew out to end the inning.

Sox starter Reynaldo Lopez had a nice outing; especially impressive was the first inning when he struck out Kole Calhoun, Mike Trout, and Justin Upton. Lopez was solid until the 5th inning. After allowing only 1 hit and striking out 6 over 4.2 innings, Lopez plunked CJ Cron, and then gave up a single to Maldonado. You can probably guess what happened next: Kole Calhoun hit a 3-run homer to tie the game. Ugh.

Then the Angels took the lead back in the 6th, when Lopez walked Upton and allowed a single to Pujols. Brandon Phillips sacrificed Upton in to give the Angels a 4-3 lead.

But the Sox battled back in the bottom of the 7th. Willy Garcia reached on a fielding error and then advanced to 2nd and then 3rd on wild pitches from reliever Cam Bedrosian. Tim Anderson made the wild pitches hurt by singling up the middle, and the game was again tied.

In the 9th, Yoan Moncada and Adam Engel combined to end the inning with a double play on a flyout. Moncada decoyed baserunner Eric Young Jr. by pretending to field the ball, but the ball was actually in the air in center field. Effectively fooled, Young had no idea where the ball was, and had to retreat to first once he figured it out. That gave Engel plenty of time to throw Young out at first.

Sox relievers Al Albuquerque, Gregory Infante, Aaron Bummer, and Danny Farquhar all suppressed Angels hitters for several innings, including dishing out a golden sombrero to Mike Trout.

And in the 10th, Avi Garcia hit a leadoff double off of sinkerballer Blake Parker after a 10-pitch at-bat. Then Nicky Delmonico followed with the game-winner to right field and a 6-4 walk-off win.

It's been an, er, interesting season of ups and downs - from hope to dread to reality to resignation. But we have a lot to look forward to, for next season and forward. Go Sox!

Sox face the Angels again tomorrow at 7:10 pm…Dylan Covey vs. TBD.
