"OK, Weaver... listen carefully. You can hold on to your red snapper, or.... you can go for whats in the box that Hiroson is bringing down the isle right now! Whats it gonna be?"

After a disheartening loss last night, the Sox came out and promptly fell behind 4-0. All looked bleak in Red Sox nation, but then came the fifth inning.

In the fifth inning, Eric Hinske had an infield single, Coco doubled to the bullpen wall and Alex Cora was hit by the pitch to load the bases. Lugo then hit a two run single. Youkilis singled to re-load the bases for Big Papi.

Ka-BLAM! (Sound effects! Yummy!) Papi crushed one deep into the right field stands for a grand slam.

In the words of the great Remy, the first four innings belonged to the Angels, the last five to the Red Sox. This really was a tale of two games. Check out the line scores. In the first four innings the Angels scored 5 runs on 7 hits while giving up 0 runs and only two hits. In the next five innings the Red Sox scored 10 runs on 11 hits while giving up 0 runs on 2 hits.

Schilling got the win, though he didn’t pitch particularly well.

AL East: The Yankees won keeping their deficit at 5.0 games.

Today (Sunday): The Sox wrap up their four gamer with the Angels. His Craziness, Julian Tavarez gets a spot start for the Sox. He’ll be opposed by Joe Saunders at 2:05pm.
