Crisp, to right field!!

Last night's big win over Tampa (big because the Yankees were humiliated by Baltimore meaning the gap in the AL East is back to five games) felt like playoff baseball, didn't it? After Kazmir and the regal Jon Lester went head to head for seven strong innings you just knew the Red Sox were going to have a shot against Tampa's Kamikaze like bullpen.

Sure enough - that's how it worked out.

Hopefully not lost in the exciting ninth inning shenanigans (how clutch is Mike Lowell?!) were Gagne's impressive eighth inning and Lester's strong start.

For those of you who missed it though, here's Red Sox broadcaster Don Orsillo's 'call' of the winning hit

''Crisp, to right field, it's in for a hit, here comes Captain Varitek..
The throw from right from Young is...up the line! Red Sox walk off with a win!''

You stayed up until 2 in the morning? There should be some award for most dedicated overseas fan. You'd win easily.
