Four Score

The Sox just set a team record by homering four consecutive times off Yankee starter Chase Wright. Manny, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell and the Captain all went deep. Back to back to back to back. First time in 27 years they hit three in a row, and first time in franchise history for four. Wily Mo Pena was the fifth batter and believe me, he tried for it but couldn't deliver. Great moment when Varitek's ball went sailing out. Interestingly, Drew was part of the Dodgers' four-homer string last September in a game against San Diego.

Unfortunately, Derek Jeter just hit one into the first row of the Monster seats off Dice-K -- so what was a 4-3 lead is now a tie ballgame in the top of the 5th. Dice-K against A-Rod right now with one out. You know A-Rod wants to take the Diceman deep after Jetes just did. And A-Rod goes down swinging feebly at a curveball. Two outs, Juicer Boy Jason up, 1 and 2 count. Strangely, I've been able to mentally block out Joe Morgan tonight. It's a wonderfully peaceful feeling. Juice Boy pops up to Varitek. Sox coming up in the home half of the 5th.
