A Team of Grit

Exhibit A for why this team is special: today's game.

(Note to AN; i bsiled after 8. The jinx was clearly in effect. I needed to do something, so i took one from the team. I pledge not to attend any more games all year (I can't do that!-- help me please)

They could have rolled over. haren wasn't sharp. The little things were going against them. The middle-of-the-lineup was somnambulent.

but no....

Kielty goes deep and we get one back. Kennedy stems the tide after losing the first guy he faced.

And then the team of "different heroes.. different nights" takes over...

Kielty again; DJ (and he should now bat 5th-- he deserves it); Payton (busting an 0-18 slump); Kendall ( isn't he always in the middle of the good things) and then Ellis, Payton (again) and Scutaro for the win.

Brilliant stuff. They won't let themselves step back. Sweep the Tigers!!!
