Game 84: Sox walk off winners!
The Red Sox used a lot of factors to beat Toronto on a Sunday afternoon game at Fenway to take three of four from the smoking hot Blue Jays. After taking an early lead, they blew a save in the ninth but then won it in the bottom of the ninth to grab their 50th win of the season. Here are the four at bats that changed the game:
2) Strong Bullpens Win Games Ryan Demspter pitched pretty well for Boston, but he got himself into a bit of trouble in the sixth. Dempster gave up a walk, followed by two singles to Rajai Davis and Colby Rasmus to load the bases with no outs. Dempster stayed in to get J.P. Arencibia on an infield fly, then then left the game for Craig Breslow. Breslow bears down and gets Maicer Izturis to fly out to shortstop, then fans Emilio Bonafacio to leave the bases loaded. What a huge moment for the Sox and Breslow, and the Sox still lead 4-2.
The 7th walkoff win is the most walkoff wins for a team at this point in any season since 1964. Boston is really starting to come togather as a team, and this team has been a lot of fun to watch. Boston has tomorrow off, but plays the San Diego Padres Tuesday night at 7:10pm at Fenway when Robbie Erlin faces John Lackey.
