Shields Down

Bob Davidson ejected Carl Crawford and Joe Maddon in the fifth inning after Crawford vehemently disagreed with a called strike. Crawford got close enough to graze the brim of his helmet against Davidson’s face. Maddon rushed to the scene to get give his piggy bank full of two cents. Take two of these and call me in the morning. If ejections last longer than four hours, contact your doctor.

Evan Longoria is a two-time All-Star, Rookie of the Year, and Gold Glover. He is the lead in a New Era commercial where he goes through a Jason Bourne-like pursuit of a guy he thinks took his hat (“That’s not my cap!”). But before he was a star in the majors he allegedly sent a picture of a different cap to a woman on Facebook. That’s my cap!

Jon Lester, Manny Delcarmen, Daniel Bard, and Jonathan Papelbon combined to one-hit the first-place Rays. Only Willy Aybar managed to find turf with his line drive single to center in the fourth. Lester’s five walks were offset by his nine strikeouts and superb fielding by Adrian Beltre at the hot corner.

The visitors’ only runs came with two outs in the third. J.D. Drew knocked a single to right through the shift and Kevin Youkilis walked on seven pitches. David Ortiz powered a double to the left field wall to plate his teammates.

Sparkling pitching, stellar defensive, and timely hitting: just like how the front office drew it up.
