The Alfredo Aceves Train of Terror -- All Aboaaaaard!

Boston lost the Orioles.  Again.  Except this time it took 12 innings.  Final score: 9-6.

Things were going fairly well for Boston (after Cook gave up his 9 hits and 5 runs in 5.1 innings)... until the Alfredo Aceves train of terror rolled onto the mound.  Aceves gave up two doubles and a single in the 12th, and all 3 runs scored in the final frame for the O's were his.  This was also the 10th loss on Aceve's record this season.

Sandwiched between Cooks and Aceve's bookends of bad pitching, the Sox used 6 pitchers who allowed just 2 hits and 1 run between them while striking out 9.  No complaints there.  Carpenter cleaned up Alfredo's mess, so in all the Sox threw 9 pitchers on the mound.  Thank God for September call-ups.

The offense held their own tonight, as well, as each batter got at least one hit.  Ciriaco, Pedroia, Aviles, Nava and Podsednk each had 2.  Danny Valencia hit the lone home run for Boston (a 2-run shot), with Ross, Lavarnway and Podsednik driving the rest of the runs home. 

At least the Sox are making the Yankees sweat as the season winds down.  Hooray!
