Gagne blows it AGAIN

Orioles - 6
Red Sox - 3

Bradford (1-4)
L: Snyder (2-3)

For the second time in the series Eric Gagne and the Boston Red Sox bullpen blew the lead and the game. Gagne allowed a two run home run in the 8th to Miguel Tejada that tied the game. Then a poor managing decision by Terry Francona to leave Kyle Synder in to face Kevin Millar resulted in the game winning 3-run home run. Curt Schilling pitched well when he was in there though as well as Manny Delcarmen who came up with three clutch strikeouts in the 9th to send it to extras. This game was disasterous though. It's sad that Hideki Okajima who was having a great year lost his job to this guy. Seriously, what's wrong with Eric Gagne? He's allowed 8 earned runs in 6 appearences.
