Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. From the sixth-inning on, I'm ready for any right-hander that comes out of the pen," said Carp after a 4-3 win over the Orioles. "And Jonny Gomes is the same way, with any left-hander. It just happened to work out that tonight was my opportunity to go hopefully get a big hit, and I came up with it, and we came out with the ballgame.""Both he and Jonny [Gomes] in that role, one, they stay prepared, and two, they have compact swings," said Red Sox manager John Farrell afterwards. "There's not much maintenance to them. They're able to repeat it, come up and hit 97-98 mile an hour fastballs is not an easy thing to do. And he got enough wood on it in this case."With two outs and runners on first and second in the bottom of the eighth, and the score tied at 3, right-handed hitting Xander Bogaerts was called back into the dugout, and the lefty Carp jumped out to pinch hit against Hunter. CSNNE: Carp comes prepared and big  Another night, another big win for the Sox, although this one was too much of a nail biter. The hero would be the right handed specialist, Mike Carp.  That bloop hit shows how confident Farrell is in Carp to come through when he's called upon. He was hot earlier in the summer, batting.367/.448/.735 in 16 games back in June, but in August he's had fewer chances to play and it appears to have affected him. He was batting .222 in 27 at-bats before last night.  The duo of Gomez & Carp gives the Sox have two quality guys coming off the bench in pinch hitting situations and last night was another game the bench won for them. Just another reminder that Ben Cherington really hit big on most of his moves so much that we can forgive him for trading for Joel Hanrahan.
