Minnesota 7, Boston 6

May 10, 2008

Jon Papelbon had his head in his hands for several minutes in the locker room after the game, just staring at the floor. With the crunch of media members from Beantown waiting in the close confines of the visiting Metrodome clubhouse, Mike Timlin actually asked everyone to give him some space. There wasn’t really anywhere to go, but all of us sort of shuffled around in order to move a couple feet away. Fun story, huh?

Props to Carlos Gomez for actually taking his fourth walk of the season with two outs in the ninth. Papelbon walked the first and the last batter he’s faced this season with none in between. I’m guessing he’ll get another shot, though, before the Red Sox decide to cut him after two straight blown saves and losses (note: sarcasm).

Mike Lamb was the big hero, but I wouldn’t get used to those words being together if I were you: http://nationalpost.pa-sportsticker.com/default.aspx?s=mlb-game-centre&mid=5182
