What the Yankees couldn’t do to eliminate the Cleveland Indians it seems the Boston Red Sox are prepared to do. After routing the Indians in the first game of the ALCS, Boston’s David Ortiz may have secured a second game win by doing what no one expects him to do: beat out an infield grounder to break-up a sure double play which led to back to back homeruns: a two run homerun by Manny Ramirez and a solo homerun by Mike Lowell, giving Boston a 6-5 lead in the fifth. The homeruns wouldn’t have happened if David Ortiz wasn’t playing his heart out – injured.
I despise the Cleveland Indians after the way their fans treated my Tigers during their last series in Cleveland, but I love this game. I’ll love it even more after Cleveland is finally eliminated. Go BoSox!
