Hard going

Nothing is ever quite as easy as it seems in Boston - the Red Sox were coasting 10-3 until the top of the ninth, but with the bases loaded Amezaga has just hit one out of the ballpark to make it 10-7. Terry Francona has been forced to bring in closer Keith Foulke to try to put out the fire.

Whew! Foulke has done his job by pitching a scoreless 9th, and the Red Sox win 10-7. In New York, the Indians are currently kicking the crap out of the Yankees - it's 22-0 to Cleveland in the top of the ninth, so I'm off to bed, safe in the knowledge that the Red Sox are now just 3 1/2 games behind New York.
