110-79. Domination. Pierce with 30 points, 7 boards, 8 assists and 5 blocks. Even without Walker, the Celtics were able to crush the Pacers. Now the series will go back to Boston for a Tuesday game. The series is now a best of 3 series with the Celtics having home court advantage.
The Red Sox have continued sucking the life out of me. Although they wound up taking 2 from Texas, a loss to Detroit is on the same level as losing a game to Boston College.
The Man of the Game for Saturday's win against Texas is Johnny Damon who went 3 for 6 with a double and a homer. He knocked in 4. Arroyo had yet another quality start.
The Man of the Game for Sunday's win against the Rangers is a tough one. Trot Nixon is going to get it with a 2 for 5, 2 RBI performance.
Despite Jeremi Gonzalez's nice start, the Red Sox were unable to overcome the pitching and offensive onslought of the mighty Detroit Tigers. I wish there was an HTML code for sarcasm, I really do.
The Man of the Game is Northeastern's own Carlos Pena who went 2 for 4 with a pair of homers and 3 RBI.
Here's the Bitch-Goat:
Nixon: 0.1 - 4 LOB
Ramirez: 0.1 - 4 LOB
Ortiz: 0.1 - 5 LOB
Varitek: 0.1 - 4 LOB
Renteria: 0.1 - 4 LOB
Mueller: 0.1 - 4 LOB
Gonzalez: 0.1 - pitched solidly, not solid enough
Neal: 0.2 - 0.1 IP, 2 ER
Embree: 0.1 - eliminated any doubt in the game
I'm not going to be updating the things on the side because it is finals week and I'm lazy.
PS: I hit my first ever Royal Flush the other day playing online. I flopped it. The odds of this are 650,000 to 1.
