OK...Stop right there...If you want to read "The Lord of the Red Sox" from the beginning, click over on "April" to the right...then select the first Lord of the Red Sox...otherwise you will be reading them backwards. Ok back to the story...
The Sox are down 2 games to 1 against Cleveland with Wakefield taking the mound. I had not done a Lord of the Red Sox post since Game 1 of the ALDS. Feeling the pressure I figured it couldn't hurt...well the Sox lost this one too, falling behind three games to one. The rest is history... But this was the last of the Lord of the Red Sox posts.

The Battle of Jabobs Field
Scene: The Sox arrive at Jacobs Field down two games to one. They need a victory to avoid a very difficult situation.
Lowell, BigPapi, Lugo and Mirabelli step from the dugout to do some pre-game stretching.
The Indians are in front of their dugout, and Sizemore notices the four Sox players.
Sizemore: (to Hafner and Lofton) Hey watch this.
Sizemore: Come out and Play. You will never see Fenway again this year.
Lugo: Be assured the Halls of Fenway will sound again with the roar of the Nation.
BigPapi: (to Lowell) They don’t know who is pitching for us tonight do they?
Lowell: (Smirks, and turns to the dugout) You ready?
King of the Knuckle: (Steps on to the field) We Will WIN!
Sizemore: Oh Crap…
King of the Knuckle: (Takes the mound and is totally unhitable by any of the Indians batters for 8 strong innings.)
Papelbon: (Closes out the Ninth) Have fun with Beckett in the next game boys…oh yeah and See Yah in Fenway!
