Just one more win
One win away.
One win away from the Cleveland Indians in the World Series.
One win away from the Cleveland Indians in the World Series and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals just five months apart.
One. Just one.
One win away thanks to Casey Blake's solo homer to start the fifth inning, then his RBI single to end the inning.
One win away thanks to Paul Byrd's double-pump, Paul Byrd's quick pitch from the stretch, Paul Byrd's one pitch that cracked 90 miles per hour, Paul Byrd's five-plus innings of two runs allowed.
One win away thanks to Rafael Betancourt's total dominance of the Red Sox -- two more perfect innings in ALCS Game 4.
One win away thanks to the Red Sox not allowing Dustin Pedroia to field any balls in the fifth inning. Kevin Youkilis and Tim Wakefield saw to that.
One win away thanks to yet another ALCS three-run home run from Jhonny Peralta.
One win away thanks to Kenny Lofton partying like it's 1999. And 1998. And 1996. And 1995.
One win away from telling Manny Ramirez to take his home-run pose and go home.
One win away from becoming the first team to beat both the Red Sox and Yankees in the same postseason.
Just one, just one win.
