Game 59: June 8, 2005
Red Sox (32-27), 4
Cardinals (38-21), 0
W: David Wells (4-4)
L: Chris Carpenter (8-4)

Well, well, well. Maybe Mr. Not Perfect really is a National League pitcher. The lefty’s line (8 innings, 4 hits, no runs or walks, and 2 strikeouts) continued his maddening pattern of inconsistency. Foulke had a somewhat uneventful save, although Albert Pujols and Reggie Sanders both singled with 2 outs in the 9th. With the count 3 and 1, Foulke was able to get Jim Edmonds to line out.

the game. All hail Big Papi.

The cursed and the formerly cursed meet for an historic series. Two clubs with diverging destinies play for the first time at Wrigley Field, where the Red Sox will hopefully douse the scorching Derrek Lee, who, up until recently, was leading the majors in the triple crown stats.


Here's hoping the Sox can obliterate the Little Bears while the Cards dominate the Yankees. I want to see our lead at 9.5 games on Monday morning...
