Strangely enough, this photo is a happy one, even though Scoots looks like he's about to drop kick his helmet into the third row.

For the second day in a row, the Red Sox walked off in the bottom of the ninth with today's magic courtesy of a sacrifice bunt by Scutaro and a throw to first by the Tigers pitcher that would make Nuke Laloosh proud.

Not for nothing, but I'd REALLY like a 10-0 game that provides no drama sometime in the near future.

And my ulcer wholeheartedly approves this message.

A couple of classless 10-0 games with all the runs coming in the first few innings might be exactly what the hapless Indians might be able to provide.

He looks happier in the rest of the sequence!

The funny thing is, I was certain that as long as Paps could keep it tied, we'd get the walkoff. That's not quite the way I'd imagined it, but it made it much less of a gut punch. And I think the crowd agreed--the very loud cheers for the end of the top of the ninth gave no indication of what had happened. Moving on, and all that.

Scouser, from your lips......

And Kelly, I noticed the same thing watching the game. The crowd didn't sound frantic or freaked out, just like you said.
