Twisting the Knife Deeper

Boston 5, Yankees 4

This series is coming down to exactly what it did last time.

Home. Field. Advantage.

I said this series would go 7, so I'm not shocked at the turn of events which has it at 3-2 Yankees. However, Boston's good fortune has come due to the fact that they have had last at bats. Of course, the Yankee bats going quiet at inopportune times, good relief pitching and the timely late-inning hitting of David Ortiz has contributed mightily to their upsurge. But now the Sox have a real dilemma: a date tomorrow night at Yankee Stadium, where they won't get last dibs.

Tell daddy we'll have you home by midnight.
