FINAL SCORE: Twins 4, Red Sox 2
PLAYER OF THE GAME: Jason Bay (1 for 4, HR)
Wild pitches are reason No. 381 that I love baseball.
But there's no reason to love them after last night. The Red Sox had six wild pitches last night, four from Daisuke Matsuzaka and one each from Manny Delcarmen and Justin Masterson. It was a modern day record for number of wild pitches in a game.
Wild pitches or not, the Red Sox still lost. There was no offense and Dice-K (5IP, 9H, 3ER, 3BB, 6K) couldn't hold them down. Offensive highlights including Jacoby Ellsbury extending his hitting streak to 22 games and Jason Bay hitting a solo home run.
Last game with the Twins is today at 1 p.m. Josh Beckett is on the hill.
