Two! Woo!

2 many good things to count 2day:

  • 2 = Rays Magic Number:  A Rays win and a Red Sox loss today and we can avoid the whole Magic Number = 1 drama.

  • 2 = Doubleheader Sweep in Baltimore Yesterday:  2 wins. Twice as nice. 2 games closer to the AL East Title. First twin bill sweep in franchise history.

  • Shields needed 2 innings to get in a groove for a career best 14th win:  The rotation was juggled to line him up for the Game One start because he goes deep into games, sparing the bullpen on a doubleheader day.  His pitch count was mighty high after two, but then he locked in and was awesome.

  • 2 Baggers key a game one win:  Navi , Perez, Bartlett.  

  • 2 awesome not to mention:  Perez' sac bunt to drive in the final run in a 5-2 win. Speedy Perez can fly. A flippin' fast Ray OF that WANTS to bunt... and CAN.  Love that. 

  • 2 out rally in game 2:  Top o' the 8th.  Bennie Boo Boo Zobrist, the Rays latest Left Fielder (seems "Utility Infielder undershoots the mark) outdid his actually awesome defense with a monster triple to get something going for the Rays. Down 4, the Rays needed much more and got it.  Aybar grounded out but scored Zobie. Dan Johnson K'd and Rays fans fluffed up the mohawks under their rally caps. Long-o drove a first pitch fastball 410 feet.  Rocco singled his booty on base and Gross walked.  2 on. Barty drives in 2 more with a pinch hit single. Baseball God and my personal hero Dioner Navarro scores 2 in a pinch hit appearance. BJ Upton, you guessed it, hits a 2B to score Navi. Rays 7- O's 5.

  • 2 many errors and 2 pitchers later, a 2 run lead for the Rays.  The Orioles played the sloppiest defense I have ever seen last night.  They are done plucked.

  • 2 scoreless innings and a save for Closer By Committee Member JP Howell.  He hails from Sacto by the way.

  • 2 few Jonny Gomes sightings.  C'mon JoJo.  Not 2 many chances left.
Not quite a perfect day though.  PTownFan's name was not drawn in the Rays' "2 Cheap 2 Buy Season Tickets, But Wants A Playoff Ticket Anyway" lottery.  But, there's a 2nd chance drawing if the series returns home to Tampa Bay for Game 5 :-)

Give PTownFan a shout. It will make her day to know there is someone out there ;-) Don't worry. She doesn't always talk about herself in the third person like The Rickey.
