1. Should have been a hit from the start. Seems pretty clear.
2. They'd have never done this if Ortiz hadn't gotten that hit in the ninth.

I was elated when we signed Lackey because I always loved the way he pitched with LAA. It took a bit longer than I expected, but he's now the pitcher I thought he'd be.
