Big Win

This win felt big to me. We go into Toronto, division match-up, trying to keep up the overall winning ways after Thursday's loss, and Clay shuts 'em down for 8 innings. Only 2 runs on a couple of solo dongs. It was close after 5, as we held a 2-1 lead. After loading the bases with nobody out in the 6th, we were only able to push one across. But Clay set 'em down in order and then we came through with 4 in the next inning, putting the game away. 7-2 final. Great job, Red Sox.

Papi had a dong and a ribbie single. Gonzalez knocked in runs with two singles. Nava continued to be awesome, going 4 for 5 with 3 doubles.

So we're tied with Toronto for fourth, 3 out of first, and 1.5 out of a playoff spot.

Saturday at 1:07 it's Doubront against Drabek's kid, who gave up 9 runs in his last start. He did dominate us in April, though. He also wears a single-digit number as a pitcher.

And holy crap, the Mets finally got a no-hitter! First in team history.
