The Red Sox swept the Yankees this weekend in what looked, on paper, like a tennis match score.
7-6, 7-5, 7-6
In last night's game, the Sox broke a record. They hit four consecutive home runs. Manny Ramirez, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell and Jason Veritek. Bang, bang, bang, bang. Going, going, going, going...
Four players hitting home runs, one after the other, in the same inning. It's only been done 10 times in baseball history. Last time it was done was last year by the L.A. Dodgers. J.D. Drew was playing for the Dodgers last year. He was one of the quartet then, too. What are the odds?
I, for one, am happy it's baseball season. Takes my mind off what's going down in Iraq. What went down at Virginia Tech. Takes my mind off the aches and pains of daily living on this hard ball we inhabit
