I have to admit that I was a little nervous going in to this series with the Angels having the best record in both the American and National Leagues. This definitely was a nail biting, hold your breath, pacing back and forth kind of series. I wrote a mini-summary of the four games below. I hope you enjoy it. For more in depth detail on the games, click on any of the Red Sox blog links on my side bar...
Game 1 - Sox 4 - Angels 1 - LA scores one in the 3rd, we score two runs in the sixth and then two more runs in the ninth and seal the deal.
Game 2 - Sox 7 - Angels 5 - we score 4 in the first, the Angels slowly chip away at our lead. We are tied 5-5 in the 8th. Drew hits a 2 run home run in the ninth to win the game.
Looking good...we are leading 2 games to none and heading back to Boston for the next two (if needed). We only need one more win and seal the deal.
Game 3 - Angels 5 - Sox 4 - the game is tied up 4-4 in the fifth and ends up going extra innings with the Angels scoring and winning the game in the 12th.
We have to win the next game or we head back to LA and that will not be good. GO SOX!!!
Game 4 - Sox 3 - Angels 2 - we score two in the fifth, they tie it up in the 8th and then we get a walk off single in the bottom of the ninth...Sox Win!! Sox Win!!
Next up - Tampa Bay which will be another tough series...

TBS! That means more of Craig Sager's electric fruit salad-flavored coats.
The first time I saw him in his orange (think it was orange) coat, I thought
TBS switched over to some singing contest. Then I thought he had to be
part of the Angels organization since his coat was sort of an Angel color.
My confusion was cleared up during the second game when he wore
a lime green coat.
During the third game, he was much more subdued a navy blue pin striped
coat, which I don't have a picture of (although he still wore a wild tie).
Alas, he did not let us down tonight, sporting a pumpkin colored plaid coat,
which should not be mistaken for his orangey-red coat that he wore during
the first game. *Edited Oct. 8th - found a photo of the pumpkin coat - and
check out the shoes!
Even if you are not a baseball fan, you just might want to tune in Friday night to checkout his next wardrobe choice. I don't know if I can stand the suspense.
