It Takes Two to Tango

Manny Ramirez won a wild one for the Red Sox tonight with a bottom of the eighth inning solo home run, his second round tripper of the night, as Boston defeated the Mariners 8-7 at Fenway Park. Here he raises his arms in triumph as the crowd goes wild in the backround as the ball sails out of the park.

"The timing was perfect. He absolutely leaned on it. He hit that ball like a power left-hand hitter. I can see why he probably admired it." -- 5.3.07, Terry Francona on Manny's home run. Ramirez, surprisingly, didn't comment after the game
