the house didn't flood between the monsoons of last night and yesterday (thought at times it was coming down pretty hard and the pool is dangerously close to overflowing), i got to sleep in a bit and the sox had their own little mini-comeback! woo!
the sox won 6-5 in 11 after being down 5-1 in the beginning of the 9th inning. 4-run 9th to tie, and an ellsbury double + youk groundout + lugo single to bring ellsbury home in the 11th. and pap broke the sox's all-time saves record with his 133rd career and 20th season save so huzzah for pap.
the twins beat the royals 5-1, no outstanding news on alex's rehab but it's pretty much official that he won't be playing in the fenway series. his hitting is getting better but his running and lateral movement and stuff isn't that great (well hello it is hip rehab we're talking here) so let's hope for a soon-but-healthy return. and let's also hope that the royals don't trade teahen before alex comes back otherwise they'd be toast in the hot corner.
rangers beat the angels last night, salty went 0 for 2 with a HBP and an RBI strikeout that has a very interesting score recap: "J Saltalamacchia struck out swinging, J Saltalamacchia safe at first on wild pitch by J Weaver, H Blalock scored, J Borbon to third." (hey i think i've had that happen to me before, just without the rbi)
the look on his face makes it look like he's thinking "uh... i don't think that was s'posed to happen..."
