In one of the most electrifying moments in the history of a ballpark that's almost older than household electricity, slugger David Ortiz last night propelled the wild-and-crazy Red Sox into the American League Championship Series with a 10th-inning, first-pitch, two-out, two-run, walkoff homer into the seats above Fenway Park's left-field wall.
The Carlton Fisk-like Monster Mash also triggered yet another Delta-house, champagne-soaked celebration in the Boston locker room, in the stands (Sox players came back out to spray those who lingered), and the streets around ancient Fenway Park. Two more series like this and the raggedy Red Sox can party like it's 1918.
Epic game and a sweep for the ages. I'm praying (for the first time) the Yanks win so the Sox would win it all going through NY.
Oritz shot rivals Fisk in 1975. These boys are winning the World Series, by the way. They are the deepest team in the post season. They have every piece of the puzzle. I don't see anybody beating them.
Go Sox beat Yankees! Party like it's 1918
