I stood up late to watch this one. Good win!

Credit goes three ways on this one.

First, the bullpen. Again they had to start early, and again they went extras, and again they held up well.

Second, Brock Holt! Pinch-hitting in the middle of a plate appearance, and he comes through with the spark that gets the offense going.

Third, and most importantly, me. Mookie hit the bases-clearing double just after I turned the game on. Obviously it was my contribution that led to victory. You're welcome.

Did I miss anyone?

I didn't watch enough of the game to say Farrell, but he at least didn't wait around to use Kimbrel.

Given the quantity and victorious outcomes of extra-inning games this year, maybe the squad needs a corresponding nickname?

The Midnight Marauders
The AM Champs
The Assassins of Extras

How much credit does Farrell deserve for the extra inning performances? All I know is that if the Sox were 3-14 there would be a movement to have Farrell strung up by his nuts.

Is 14-3 in extras in one season historically great? It certainly *sounds* historic.

It's up there. According to BB Ref the MLB record for extra inning wins is 19 by the 1959 Pirates and the 14 wins is tied for 26th all time. The .824 winning percentage is 21st among teams with at least 10 extra inning games.

Even more amazingly, guess who pitched for the Orioles? Either Buck has learned something or the "no Britton" rule applies only in elimination games.

And Harvey Haddix grumbles, 'You f*^&ers; could've traded a few of those for my extra inning game. Thanks for nothing, Don Hoak."

I hate to put a damper on your amazement, but even Buck and any other worshiper of the save stat have been using their closer in tie games at home all along.

Oh man, I didn't even catch that.

Yeah, Dylan Bundy and Miguel Castro.

I thought Castro did alright, he was asked to do too much. Guy threw a bunch of pitches. He had no business facing Benintendi.

He was OK in the beginning, but then he went too far?

Doesn't Boston have a permanent "movement to have (insert manager name here) strung up by his nuts?" Most cities do, certainly Detroit, Baltimore, LA (yes there are people who hate Dave Roberts and Mike Scioscia), St. Louis (even St. LaRussa), Chicago (even the savior Joe Maddon).

Yup. There are people I distinctly remember complaining at length about "Francoma" who now ##### that Farrell isn't as good as Tito. Which he's not but the level of ######## just seems silly for a guy who won a World Series, has two division titles and may be two weeks away from a third.

12-3 is pretty damn good, too. That's the 2017 Orioles record in extras. Before last night's game the O's had the higher winning percentage in extras (.857 to .813).

Which might lead us to ask who is taking all those extra inning losses? Toronto, that's who.
