FINALLY! Sox end 6 game slide, 5-4 in Anaheim

As Johnny Drama would bellow, VICTORY! Yes the losing streak is over at 6 games, and it was done in gritty, gutsy fashion. The Sox had to withstand an Angel rally after jumping out to a 5-1 lead by the third inning, thanks to Papi's 45th bomb, a 2-run jack in the first, and WMP's 2-run shot in the 2nd.
Timlin secured the hold when he got out of a bases loaded, 1-out situation in the 7th, and after old pal Foulkie got in trouble in the 8th, Paplebon came in to record 4 outs to seal the one run win.
For one night it was just like the old days (of one month ago). ManRam did start, but after going hitless in 2 ABs, he left after the 5th. Oh well. It's a win, and they needed one BADLY, so let's just take it for what it is and move on. After all, the Stanks won too, and so did the Chisox. Still a long hill to climb.

Well it's 1:30 and I've got to get some the morning I am going to the 1ST Annual Chicago Bob Memorial Golf Tournament. Plenty of coverage to come tomorrow evening (if I'm able)!
