Default ESPN getting it wrong again?

Manny Ramirez hit a ninth-inning, game-winning home run in the Red Sox's 6-5 victory over the White Sox on Thursday. Ramirez's at-bat was prolonged when Joe Crede dropped a foul pop-up. It was the first such home run -- a late-inning game-winner after a batter was given a so-called "second life" -- since Aug. 28, 1992. Wally Joyner dropped Dan Gladden's foul pop-up in the eighth inning, and then Gladden hit a two-run tiebreaking homer to give the Tigers a 4-2 win over the Angels.

If memory serves correctly didn't AJ hit is two run game winning walk off blast after being given a "second life"

AJ's pop foul wasn't dropped. Technically, it was a "No Play". It was a lack of effort not an error.

Hee Sop couldn't get to the ball in the 1st base dugout, so he didn't get charged with an error. That's probably what they're talking about...

Yeah... I am sure they looked this up based off an error charged, which Joe did get.

Kind of an unrelated note...didnt want to beat a dead horse in a separate post so I just thought I'd put it on this one...

Does anyone else notice how in games like last night ESPN focuses on the BoSox winning and not us losing? ESPN.com did nothing but praise Manny for hitting the homer and Schilling's effort in the 9th while failing to mention that we basically gave them the game. Although this kind of covers up how much we screwed up, it would be a lot more fair for them to call it both ways and stop praising them for winning and realize they got lucky on some bad plays by us.

YES! ESPN simply takes a page out of the How-to-cover-the-Cubs-and-make-them-look-good-despite-it-all handbook. I was going to make a JOKE
yesterday and say that ESPN will be FORCED to make the SOX the lead story
on the news ............ because we'll be playing their 2nd favorite team the RedSox

I don't get ESPN (don't miss it either) so I only read the websites. The AP feed took the line that the Red Sox got lucky.
