Carl Crawford Delivers Game Winner!!!!!

By Editorial Staff

It may have taken a month coming, but it finally came.  Carl Crawford ripped a walk off single up the middle, driving in Jed Lowrie and a Red Sox 3-2 victory.  Alleluia , Alleluia, Alleluia!!!!

Tim Wakefield‘s first start of the year may have been ruined by the incompetent Bobby Jenks, but the Sox still salvaged a well needed win.  After Jenks blew the Sox 2-0 Lead, Matt Albers pitched two innings of shutout ball.  Then, Jonathan Papelbon blew the Mariners away in the top of the ninth.  Papelbon is certainly back to the Papelbon of old, untouchable.

J.D. Drew grounded out to start the bottom of the ninth.  Jed Lowrie followed with a deep drive to right that Ichiro Suzuki lost in the sun.  Ichiro tried to crouch down to get a better view of the ball, but the ball ricocheted off his leg and rolled to the right field corner.  Lowrie easily legged it out for a triple.  Marco Scutaro grounded out to third baseman, Chone Figgins, holding Lowrie at third.  This left the game in the hands of Carl Crawford who drilled a pitch up the middle to drive in the game winner.

Crawford’s teammates mobbed their struggling left fielder as he touched first base.  A welcome sight, a sight we have been anxiously awaiting all year.  New day, new month and hopefully a new Carl Crawford.

Peter Gammons, filling in for Jerry Remy, said just prior to Crawford stepping to the plate that Terry Francona couldn’t have scripted it any better if Crawford could win it right now.  Well said Mr. Gammons.
