Boston 10, New York 3
Rebel Alliance 4, Galactic Empire 3

The Death Star exploded tonight.

Derek Lowe pulls it together long enough to pitch perhaps the best 6 innings of his life, the second consecutive clutch pitching performance by a Red Sox starter in Yankee Stadium. The only downer of the night was the boneheaded idea of using Pedro Martinez in relief in the 7th inning, a near-fiasco that woke up the then-sleepy crowd that came to a quick and merciful end.

To say that Johnny Damon woke up is an understatement. Grand slam. 2-run homer. After 3-for-29 in the first 6 games. David Ortiz cemented MVP honors with his 2-run homer in the top of the 1st.

Only thinking in choppy fragments now. I'm still busy trying to convince myself that I actually watched this game happen.
