Game 45: May 25, 2005
Red Sox (25-20), 1
Blue Jays (25-21), 6
L: Bronson Arroyo (4-1)
W: Ted Lilly (3-4)
H: Vinnie Chulk (4)

I liked it when Ted Lilly was not in the same division as the Red Sox. Whenever he became available, I would be hopeful that he would make it to Boston, primarily because it was frustrating to watch him shut down the lineup time and again. Case in point is Game 3 of the 2003 ALDS, where Lilly could have came away with a win and Oakland with a series sweep if Rich Harden didn’t blow it in the 11th inning.

From the “It Couldn’t Last Forever Department,” Arroyo lost his first game since August 15th of last year. He lasted 6 innings with 6 hits, 5 runs (2 earned), no walks, and 1 strikeout. Perhaps on any other day this would have been enough to continue the lossless streak, but it was an evening where only Renteria, Mueller, Nixon, and Bellhorn had hits, and they only had 1 apiece.

I’ve come to the conclusion that those scoreboards on the outfield walls aren’t truly scoreboards. When an opposing team is at bat, I think a harmful wavelength of light is transmitted that swells the blood vessels that supply the optic nerve, causing temporal arthritis. It’s just a theory I’ve been pondering. I wish Dave were here to discuss it with me.
