8-1 Trip

Fine, fine job by our Red Sox. 8-1 on the road trip through NY, TOR, and TB. We outscored those dudes 67-25. Huge homer by Adrian with 2 outs in the 9th added a run to our one-run lead. After a leadoff double in the bottom of the 9th, Upton got a rare single that didn't advance the runner. But then Youk made a diving catch on a sac bunt attempt and Pap took care of the last two.

We go home to face the Brew Crew with a 1.5 game lead over the Yanks, 5.5 over Tampa. The Phils and us are the only two .600+ teams in baseball.

Remember my Month-By-Month Outlooks I did before the season? Obviously I effed up April. But my May was stellar. I predicted a 19-11 month, and the Sox went 19-10 with one rainout. Here's my original post, with what ended up really happening in bold brackets:

Win that last one vs. Seattle.[correct] 3 of 4 from LAA.[split 4] 3 of 4 from Twins.[correct] Then on the road to Toronto. We lose both there[correct], then win 2 of 3 in NY.[swept 3] Sweep two vs. Balty[won 1, other rained out], sweep 2 more vs. Det[correct], then take 2 of 3 from the Cubs.[correct] We're on fire! [correct!] Take 2 of 3 in Cleve[correct], then lose 3 of 4 in Detroit[won 3 of 4]. Split those last 2 vs. White Sox.[lost both]

Not doing so hot series-wise in June so far, though I'm only off by 2 wins.
