Labor Day Victory

WP- Bronson Arroyo (8-9)
LP- Barry Zito (10-10)
HR- M Kotsay 2 (13, 14), M Ramirez (38), D Ortiz (36)

Nice win tonight, one I felt we really needed- Arroyo struggles against lefties, and the Oakland lineup is stacked as such. After a really shaky looking start, Arroyo settled down to earn the win, going 6.2 IP, giving up 3 ER over 7 H with no BB and 2 K. The bullpen held the line, and a huge 4 run ninth put it away for good. This game will be remember for Kotsay's hit that was called an out when Manny trapped the ball- and the subsequent littering of the field with beer cups. But it should be noted that we're becoming increasingly efficient in getting on teams, and capitalizing on opportunities. Oakland is the best home team in the major leagues. A sweep or series win there would be enormous.

It looks like too they're making 100% sure with Damon's finger before getting him back in. He may get the start tomorrow against Redman, but either way, our depth allows the caution, which is a nice luxury. As of right now, Trot and Williamson look to be activated by the end of the week. This is incredible news.

4 RBI tonight give Big 122 on the year, and a tie for the MLB lead with Miguel Tejada.

Let's get Lowe going tomorrow, and let's obliterate Redman like last time.
