7/31 Linescore of the Day – Manny Ramirez

Manny Ramirez, Boston Red Sox

1 for 1, rbi

Manny Ramirez, Boston Red Sox 1 for 1, 1 RBI Sometimes it’s not what you do, but it’s when you do what you do. Putting aside all rumors involving a trade out of Beantown Ramirez came up as a pinch hitter in the bottom of the 8th to deliver an RBI single to break a three-three tie. With two outs Edgar Renteria doubled, the Twins elected to intentionally walk David Ortiz, and the Boston faithful started chanting, “MANNY, MANNY, MANNY”. “Forget about the trade. This is the place I want to be,” Ramirez said. “They want to win. I want to win, too. I’m back.” Ramirez bounced a chopper up the middle to score Edgar Renteria and give the Red Sox their fifth consecutive victory. After Renteria crossed the plate, Ramirez took off his batting helmet and pointed both hands at the crowd in a double-barreled salute. “That’s hard not to get chills when that stuff is happening,” Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. “That’s about as electric as you’ll see it.”
