Are You Kidding Me!?
Mariano Rivera looks on in discust as a bloop single from Johnny Damon drops in front of Kenny Lofton as the go-ahead run crosses the plate behind him.
"'We're facing the best closer in the history of the game, don't get too down on yourselves.' Against a guy like that, if you can pull off a victory, you've done something special," said Damon.Damon was 2-4 with 2 RBI but none bigger than his RBI single in the top of the 9th scoring Gabe Kappler.
Trot Nixon getting that walk was a key. Orlando getting that hit, it's a lot easier to hit when the score is tied," said Damon. "It's never easy when you go up against Mo."
36% or all of Mo's blown saves are against the Red Sox. Think about that.
