With the Red Sox atop the American League for most of the summer, the conclusion to my replay surprised me. But if you consider the pre-2004 atmosphere around Fenway Park, the second time around the order with my replay may just be as possible an outcome than the real “Impossible Dream”. The goats for the

The Impossible Dream of a pennant-winning season in Boston proved to be impossible after all. Fielding gaffes in stretch run choked any championship dreams for Manager Dick Williams’ troops.

George Scott belted a ninth-inning two-out solo home run over the left field wall off Dennis Higgins (0-1) to win the opener for the Boston Red Sox, 8-7, over the Chicago White Sox. Boston took an early four-run lead, and seemed to have control of the game as Jim Lonborg held the Chisox at bay

Bruce Howard (12-3) and Bob Locker combined on an eight-hitter as the Chicago White Sox defeated the Baltimore Orioles, 3-1. Despite the loss, the Orioles’ magic number was reduced to seven by virtue of the Yankees’ 2-1 win over the Twins on Bobby Richardson Day at the Stadium. Baltimore failed to get the key hit

30 innings of baseball in Chicago? Only on the South Side where lights can continue play through dusk even in the summer time. Game 1 of a Sunday double header goes 21 innings, the longest baseball game over the last two seasons. The Yankees break a seven inning deadlock on the ever-exciting bases loaded RBI
