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...
