Seattle smashes

It’s been a mighty long game — with a lot of internet disruption — but it hasn’t gone well at all for the Red Sox.

Especially not in this past inning, in which Mike Timlin gave up home runs on consecutive pitches to Kenji Johjima and Adrian Beltre. Probably not what he wanted to you. You might remember that Timlin also had trouble in Seattle on one of the two Northwest trips taken by the Sox last season, giving up a July 23rd homer to Richie Sexson to take the loss in that game.

(Interesting note. Before that July 23rd game, Sexson had been 1-for-16 off Timlin. Since then, with the homer he hit in that game, he’s 3-for-3, including a walk tonight.)
