Game 26 - Red Sox

Red Sox 7, Kansas City Royals 2
Record: 17-9

The baseball season has begun to settle into a comfortable rhythm, after the hype of Opening Day and the burst of excitement that comes with the beginning of every season. There are a lot of games that just slip by quietly, like leaves on a fast-moving stream, and don't leave much mark on my consciousness. This game was like that. Sox overcame a 2-0 deficit, created in part by Trot Nixon's wild flailing that turned a routing single into an inside-the-park homer by Carlos Beltran. The offense, led by Nomar, kept churning, scoring 3 times in the 5th and 8th innings to back Tim Wakefield. All in all a nice, tidy, quick victory - coupled nicely with Roger Clemens getting pounded by the Mariners.
