"As Balzac said, 'There goes another novel.'" Alvy Singer.

The Red Sox proved why they are a tremendous team. They had calls go against them but their bullpen was terrific again and David Ortiz won the game with a bloop single to center in the bottom of the 14th. It came off of Esteban Loaiza who pitched tremendously for the Yanks. Ortiz's game-winning at-bat is one for the ages. The Yanks could not score a clutch hit, and the bullpen blew a 4-2 eighth inning lead. In all, it was a thrilling game. Exactly what we've come to expect from these two teams. Rest up good, the series returns to the Bronx tomorrow night. This one is a long way from over.
