Thanks to some fantastic pitching by Wake and a 3 run HR by Jacoby, the Sox take the series against the Royals 2 out of 3. Normally, a series win vs. Kansas City is hardly cause to celebrate, but the way road games have gone for the boys this year, I'll take it.
Off to Chicago, Hawk Harrelson and Ozzie Freaking Guillen for the weekend.
Is it too much to ask for a Josh Beckett fastball to ricochet off the helmet of AJ Pierzynski and hit Ozzie smack dab in the middle of his forehead? Or at the very least can Ozzie trip over a sprinkler head and tear his ACL?
I didn't think so; Bring on Griffey Jr., Konerko, and the rest of the Pale Hose.
The charge to first place in the AL East is now officially on.
