Bay Goes Deep. Again.

Before the game, Angels Manager Mike Scioscia made the point that in a short series, the momentum can change from pitch to pitch. And in the top of the first, we saw exactly what he meant.

Angels starter Ervin Santana had just made Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia look foolish while taking some bad swings for the first two outs of the inning. But David Ortiz poked a single over the shift and Kevin Youkilis fought one off into right field. J.D. Drew followed by banging an RBI double up the middle.

Bay finished the onslaught, with his second monster homer of the series, in only his second career playoff game. This one landed in the rockpile, just left of straightaway center, a three-run jack to give Boston a 4-1 lead entering the bottom of the third inning.

Yawn. Again.

I'd been hoping all season that the Rays would end up on top of the division, but David Ortiz' comments back in July just reinforced it for me (and how's the view for you, Yankees?):
