Game 139 - Sox vs. Angels (L 3-0)
The Sox and Angels will meet for the final time this season tonight, but my eyes, and the eyes of a great many New Englanders, will be on the sporting event taking place just to the south—NFL’s Opening Night, featuring the New England Patriots vs. the Oakland Raiders. Despite that, I expect another great game between Los Angeles and Boston, and one that I’ll be sorry to miss. Clement takes the mound for the Sox, who are looking to go 11-3 on this homestand and maybe pick up another game on the Yankees before headed to the Bronx this weekend (if the damned Devil Rays will just cooperate and hold the lead against the Bombers tonight).
It should be a great night in Boston sports. That’s my prediction.
