Just got back from Fenway, where I saw a teriffic game with Bismo and The Hey. The Sox beat the LA Angels 3-2 on a walkoff homer by David Ortiz. Of course, we all remember the last time Big Papi beat the Angels with a walkoff homer, in game 3 of last year's ALDS.

Papi's heroics were set up by a stellar pitching performance by Tim Wakefield, who pitched a complete game. Wake gave up only two runs and eight hits. He was backed up by some nice defense by John Olerud, who made at least three plays that Kevin Millar can only dream of making.

All in all, it was a great night at the Fens (although my view of the pitcher was obscured by a pole). This is the last game I have tickets for this season, so unless work comes up with some tickets either during the regular season or in October, it was a heck of a way to end my live baseball season for 2005.

As a bonus, the Yankees lost (again!) to Tampa Bay, so the Sox pull four games in front of the Empire.
