Nail-bitin’ time

Jonathan Papelbon loaded the bases with no outs on two singles and a full-count walk to Alex Cintron, then fell behind strongman Jim Thome 2 and 0. He came back to whiff Thome with a 96 mile an hour fastball, and is 1 and 2 on Paul Konerko.
There’s a ground ball to third, Lowell starts a 5-4-3 DP. Game over.
Sox win, 8-5. Paps gets the save, his 22d
