More than halfway through tonight's game, the A's have held the dangerous Red Sox scoreless, and added a pair of runs, one on a home run by Eric Chavez, and a second on a double by Nick Swisher that scored Jason Kendall, who ran faster than I think I have ever seen him go.
Of course, every time he comes to bat, I am yelling for the A's to put in Melhuse. That gets me all sorts of curious looks from my fellow fans.
Red Sox are threatening, but the A's pitcher, Lenny DiNardo, has been wiggling out of jams all evening. We'll see if he can do it again.
