Save Some Runs For Tomorrow!

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
I was busy doing Trivia last night at The Mad Hatter, but it seemed like every time I looked up at one of the TVs that had the Red Sox-Rangers game on, the boys from Boston had men on and were scoring runs.
The Sox scored in every inning but the eighth (and as Allan at Joy of Sox points out, they would have been the 7th team in AL history to have done so had they tallied in the 8th), and the only pitcher to shut them down was none other than David Murphy, who pitched the 8th to spare the Texas pen. (He even struck out Mike Carp looking, who was then ejected for arguing the call.)
Everybody had their hitting shoes on in the 17-5 rout.
Jackie Bradley Jr. hit his first MLB home run, a shot over the bullpens.
David Ortiz went 2-for-5, including a two-run triple, his first three-bagger in two years.
Daniel Nava had three hits and scored four times.
Stephen Drew had four hits and scored three times and hit a home run.
Carp and Jarrod Saltalamacchia also hit home runs. (Carp's blast carried Nelson Cruz into the Red Sox bullpen.)
It was a fun night, and just as importantly, Ryan Dempster pitched a second straight solid outing, going seven and allowing three runs. My mother always said when the Mets were scoring a lot of runs, "save some for tomorrow!" Sorry, mom, it doesn't work that way. It would be nice to be like the Jeopardy Tournament of Champions when the first day of winnings can be carried over to the next day, but MLB hasn't figured out how to do that yet.
