Tony E: Failed double play key to loss

After (finally) not having to hear any curse talk this season, especially when the Red Sox blew the 5.5 game division lead with about 7 weeks to go, UB was forced to hear comparisons to Bill Buckner all morning after Tony Graffanino error gave the White Sox an extra out which resulted in a 3 run home run and a loss. Tony G tried to make up for his mistake with a double in the 9th and only one out, but Johnny Damon and Edgar Rent-a-wreck couldn't drive him in. Sox lose 5-4 and trail the best of 5 series 2-0.

After Tony G's failed double play that would have ended the inning, David Wells got the next batter and appeared like he might get out of it. With two strikes on Tadahito Iguchi, Wells threw a second consecutive curve ball and Iguchi hit a three-run homer over the left-field wall to give the White Sox a 5-4 lead.

The Red Sox were in control of the game early, scoring 2 in the 1st and 2 in the 3rd, but cooled off and couldn't do anything more against Mark Buehrle. The White Sox brought in their closer, 24-year-old rookie Bobby Jenks who pitched well in the 8th and 9th. The Red Sox are 8-1 the last 3 years in playoff elimination games. They are going to have to be 11-1 by this time next week or that's all she wrote...

Fatboy Jenks gave the Red Sox fits, almost as much as that stupid Mr. Jinx...

Jinx can't flush the toilet he lacks the strength and the opposable thumbs.
