send the bus drivers homeTwo looks at last night's blown save:
Barely half an hour after David Ortiz's single hit the outfield turf in the Red Sox' 8-7 win yesterday, Jonathan Papelbon's locker was empty of street clothes. He had left already, bound with five other teammates -- Jason Varitek, Doug Mirabelli, Matt Clement, Tim Wakefield, and Mike Timlin -- for the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill concert at the TD Banknorth Garden.
Papelbon, who allowed one run in 1 1/3 innings, was infallible by comparison to Rudy Seanez. The veteran right-hander inherited a bases-loaded situation from Tim Wakefield in the seventh inning with the Sox ahead 6-0 and allowed all three runners to score.
