soft hands.

ooh ooh ooh, what a little leche can do

After reaching on a fielder's choice in the first, Cabrera took off for second when a pitch from Beckett to Giambi bounced a few feet away. Catcher Jason Varitek quickly picked the ball up and fired to second but his throw was awry, bouncing into short right field. Since no one was covering third base - against Giambi, the Red Sox shift their infielders to the right side - Cabrera took off for third. Then, when he realized that Varitek had belatedly run up the line toward third, Cabrera scampered past the catcher on his way home.

In other words, Cabrera scored from first on a wild pitch (Varitek was charged with a two-base error) and his exuberance drew a standing ovation from the crowd, starved for such youthful vigor in recent years. [daily news]
