Game 21: April 26, 2005
Orioles (14-7), 11
Red Sox (11-10), 8
W: Jorge Julio (1-0)
S: B.J. Ryan (3)
H: Mike Timlin (3)
BS, L: Keith Foulke (1, 1-3)

The Red Sox had not let an opposing team score in the 1st inning until last game, and they continued the trend with this game. It was an inauspicious beginning to a loss that felt as if one were being slowly bled to death by a leech. The less said about this game by me the better. Feel free to read MLB’s wrap for the gory details.

Happenings off the field were more entertaining than last night’s game. Curt Schilling and Lou Piniella had a war of words through the “Dennis and Callahan” show on WEEI and the St. Petersburg Times, respectively. But now Schilling has been put on the disabled list with a bone bruise. Maybe he got it putting his foot into his mouth?

How nauseating is it that Alex Rodriguez had 10 RBIs last night? It inspired this exchange:

With the wind blowing out to right field during batting practice, Jeter had told Rodriguez, “No human alive can hit a ball out to left tonight.”

But Rodriguez hit two to left, and another to center. “I think I called Jeet every name in the book,” he said.

Way to “Go Pro,” Rodriguez. Uncanny timing that his historic night came so quickly on the tail of this announcement that he is going to be a spokesperson for Pepsi along with Vladimir Guerrero.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the Pepsi family this year, and look forward to working with them for many years to come,” said Rodriguez. “It is an honor to be associated with such a world class brand, and a corporation with a long tradition of excellence.”

If Rodriguez thinks that Guerrero is upstaging him during the filming, watch for the disparaging comments. “You’re standing in my key light.” “I have to be standing here, this is my best side.” “I think I should have more lines, since I speak better English.” One more chance for Rodriguez to show that he thinks he’s the best player in baseball.
