Scoreboard Watching (Sept 19, 2011): Pirates @ D'backs, 6.40p

Ian Kennedy (19-4, 2.99) vs. Charlie Morton (9-10, 3.81).

Kennedy chases his 20th win and an outside position at the NL Cy Young Award, while the D'backs try and close their magic number to four by salting away a victory at home tonight. I suppose I should feel bad for the Pirates, outscored 28-4 in their last three games against the Dodgers (and outscored 30-10 in the series), but hey--when it rains, it pours; right, Morton?

Go Snakes!

Fuck. Given a 3-0 lead thanks to John Lackey's lameness, Baltimore starter Brian Matusz comes out in the bottom of the first and promptly gives up four runs.
Boston leads 4-3 after 1.

Better strap in for this one.

6-3 in the bottom of the second and the Red Sox aren't out of the frame yet.

Baltimore is letting this get away fast.

Baltimore scores 2 in the top of the third to make it 6-5

11-5 Boston in the bottom of the third. It's over... Boston will go back to 2 up on TB in the WC

Remember when I thought John Lackey would be a good addition for the Dodgers?

Me neither.

Bos 11, Bal 9, midway through the sixth

Angels lose in extras, to the Jays, 3-2. Brutal...

Stop spotlight-hogging, Kennedy!

Stupid Ian Kennedy I hate him so much he sucks.

But at least the Giants' tragic number shrinks to four!
