regarding sunday's game (the third of the red sox series), which the tigers came back to win 13-12 in extra innings: this is the first time that the red sox have ever lost a game in which they held multiple-run leads twice in the ninth inning or later. and it's the 2nd time that the tigers have won a game in this fashion, the first since september 28, 1929 against the white sox. alex avila's walk-off homer was the first one hit by the tigers when trailing in extra innings since september 19, 1998.
i haven't had the chance to watch any of the first three games, though i did get to listen to parts of sunday's game on the radio. but i've worn my orange ballcap with the blue d during each one, and so far they've won every game. i'm going to stick with it.
