Carl Crawford is no longer useless. He had 2 hits today, including a game winning walk off single in the bottom of the 9th inning scoring Jed Lowrie who had just hit a triple.
Now, back to Bobby Jenks. Tim Wakefield had pitched 5.2 innings and had allowed only 3 hits, 1 run and 1 walk while striking out 3 Mariners. Wake left the game in the 6th inning with a man on 1st and the Red Sox holding 2-out 2-0 lead. Jenks. Jenks' 6th inning: single, wild pitch, walk, walk, walk, before finally getting the final out.
Salty and Wake combined to catch Chone Figgins trying to steal 2nd base, not an easy thing to do.
Jenks leaves the game tied 2-2. Albers and Papelbon pitched 3 scoreless innings, before Crawford earned a tiny bit of of redemption.
