PhilSox Blog: 7/25/07 Boxed Up

 


7/25/07 Boxed Up








Well! What a night! Not all of it good, but what a night, none-the-less!
Turn about is fair play, they say, but it still stings getting beaten 1-0 after doing the same to the Indians the night before. On Wednesday it was Carmona and Borowski for the Indians and Josh Becket threw the rare complete game loss. The Sox had two runners caught stealing (Varitek and Lugo) late in the game and on thrown out at home (Crisp) after a David Ortiz single.

The Phils, oh my the Phils! I got to watch this game. After leading the entire way, the Phils managed to blow a 2 run, ninth inning lead. So, it's the bottom of the ninth, no one on, two out, when Jimmy Rollins comes to the plate. He launches one to left center, where Church and Logan both manage to miss it! Jimmy, who remembered the little league coach who told him to run hard even when you think your out, was rounding second when the throw came into short stop Felipe Lopez - who boofed it! Rollins sees this and sprints home. He slides head first and the catcher, Schneider, drops the ball. Tie game!!! Cut to the 14th, same 5-5 score. For the fifth inning in a row, the Phils get their lead off man on (four of those were walks, including this one to Utley.) Up comes our boy Ryan Howard who rockets one to right center, second deck, for the walk off!

Awesome!
