7.27.11 Lehigh Valley IronPigs did not lose.

Why is 'IronPigs' one word? I hate it! I hate it!

Tony Pena gave up five runs, Pawtucket got more hits, but LV got more runs.

Nate Spears hit his seventh home run of the season. Brandon Moss went 3-5 with three RBI. Brandon Moss is very cute.

Pawtucket was in the lead until the eighth inning, when LV scored a run to tie it. Scott Atchison was The Reliever Who Blew It.

Game goes to extras, Jason Rice gets the job. Rice blows it even harder, takes home the L. 8-7 Pigs. Josh Barfield walks it off, wins for all Pennsylvanians in attendance.

Left fielder Daniel Nava went 4-5. Ryan Lavarnway batted in four runs, because he is the Red Sox God of Smash. Everybody in the PawSox lineup got a hit. (woohoo)

Luis Exposito was caught stealing, picked off, and twice came up to bat with RISP, two outs and failed to deliver.

Che-Hsuan Lin went 2-6 and made his third error of the season.

LV DH Tagg Bozied went 0-4 with three K's.

Reliever Michael Schwimer got the win for L. Valley.

here, read this:
1. Kevin Pereira, Examiner.
2. Michael LoRe, Express-Times. Aggression.
3. "I can not overstate the atmosphere at the park tonight. It was playoff baseball. The first and second place teams duking it out late in the season. The fans roared for every positive moment and it felt like The Coke was shaking when Frandsen scored the winning run. Incredible!" - Terrific stuff from The Horn and Bell blog.
4. Matt from 'Bacon and Biscuits' is equally excited.

Now I must go get ready.
