Yes. I am a Red Sox fan. Tonight was just one of those nights. Each team played valiantly, but as always there is only one winner. Tonight, it was the Los Angeles Angels. At 12:47 a.m. eastern time, the Angels defeated the Red Sox 5-4. Here is a quick breakdown of the game.
Top of the first inning: With the bases loaded, Rivera walked, C Figgins scored. 1-0.
Bottom of the second: On a misplayed fly-ball to center, Ellsbury singled to shallow center, J Lowrie, J Varitek and C Crisp scored.
In the top of the third, possibly the beginning for the story of the night, Napoli homered to left, V Guerrero scored.
Top of the fifth, Napoli homered to left.
Bottom of the fifth, Youkilis doubled to deep center, J Ellsbury scored.
At this point, we are tied 4-4 at the end of regulation. In extra innings both teams had opportunities to score, but the Angels capitalized.
Top of the twelfth inning, Aybar singled to center, M. Napoli scored.
That would be all she wrote for the Sox, not being able to move Ortiz from first base in the bottom of the twelfth. With the series at 2-1 Red Sox, tonight is the crucial game four. Tune in to TBS to watch the game.
