An A Bomb from....Captain Clutch?!

If being wrong in my prediction means I get to sit back as a baseball fan and take in one of the best games i've ever seen....i'm glad I wasn't right...
For only the fifth time in the history in baseball, Alex Rodriguez broke a scoreless tie in the 15th inning or later with a home run. After a 72 at-bat homerless streak, A-Rod took Junichi Tazawa delivery over the left-field wall to send the fans home happy.
A,J Burnett finally pitched well against the Red Sox this season, but his counterpart and former teammate Josh Beckett matched him with 7 scoreless innings as well....
I honestly didn't expect the Sox to be beaten the way they have over the past two games...A defeat like last night is enough to put a team down for a couple days, which would be bad timing considering they've already slipped back to a 4.5 game defecit in the division.
