Game 22: April 29, 2005
Red Sox (11-11), 2
Rangers (12-12), 7
L: Tim Wakefield (2-1)
W: Chan Ho Park (3-1)
S: Ron Mahay (1)

I’m going to pretend that innings 6 through 9 never happened, which will be quite easy for me because I fell asleep watching this game. As much as I was looking forward to baseball after 2 days without it, watching Park ease through the Red Sox lineup with 111 pitches (66 strikes) through 7 innings despite walking 4 hitters inspired somnolence.

You might remember that I mentioned Millar has actually been able to drive balls to the opposite field of late. In the 4th inning with two outs, Millar tripled to center field. How unlikely is that? It was his 14th career triple. He and Ortiz should have a contest for most three-baggers this season. Stock up on that applesauce.

Wakefield wasn’t doing badly at all until the 6th inning. His ERA went from 1.75 to 2.78 with this game. If only there was a way to attribute one of those earned runs to Ramirez and Damon. I had an ominous feeling about the game from the 1st inning because of those outfield miscues. I’m sure Voros McCracken has accounted for defensive sluggardness somewhere.

Deathwish goes tonight to lay down the law against the pesky Rangers. If you’re a Red Sox fan in Texas enjoying the games, be sure to be on the lookout for these unsavory characters. They only put out a grand for information on the fugitives, but it might help defray the cost of your trip.
