Baseball After Bedtime: Carmelita

Here's what happened in baseball last night, when you wereall strung out on heroin on the outskirts of town:

Red Sox 7, Yankees 3: Late night last night, kiddies! The Sox and the Yanks played another near-four-hour game and I sat through it, including the rainy part of the game after the fifth inning. Joba Chamberlain was shaky in the first, allowing the first five hitters of the game to reach including Jason Bay's three-run tater tot. Fella calmed down after that, recording a career-high twelve strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings. Josh Beckett was shaky all game long but only made one big oopsie, a Johnny Damon homer that CAME DIRECTLY AT ME, AGAIN. Well, two seats to the left of me. No jamooks this time but it was still out of my grasp. Beckett allowed 11 baserunners over 6 but the Sox Eastern intrigue bullpen of Hideki Okajima and Takashi Saito was perfect over three. We hit the bricks with our dollar store umbrellas and my jeans are still soaking wet. But hey, at least nobody told us it was okay to leave early.

Other stuff happened too, but I'm out of the loop. I hung out with FoWoW Jonah Keri at the game and he kept checking for the Expos score. Poor, sorry Montrealers...

Carlos Delgado had one of the worst errors I've ever seen in the bottom of the 9th last night. It would have been the last out of the game, but he let a pop up, pop out of his glove.

Then with the tying run at 3rd Chipper flied out.
