How 'bout 'dem Sox!
The Red Sox are kicking butt and taking names. Schilling, Beckett, Dice-K... it's nice to have 3 aces on one staff. They go for the sweep tonight in Toronto. Look for Wakefield to be sharp tonight---his knuckler dances in domes.
Although Dice-K stumbled a bit out of the gate this season, he's shown fantastic stuff and poise. Matsuzaka-san put it together last night allowing only 5 hits and 1 earned run in 7 innings of work for the win
Piniero coughed up a solo tater in the 9th, but it was an otherwise quiet night for the Red Sox bullpen. Donnelly made another 1-inning appearance, and the rest of the boys had the night off.
Home runs were hit by J-Lugo, Papi, Manny, and Lowell. Crisp did well last night going 1-3 with 2 runs, 2 walks, and a stolen base. Papi went 4-5 with 3 ribbies and a run. Lowell went 3-5, and Pedroia stayed hot, going 2-4. Not bad boys!
No errors last night. A solid all-around job.
Daisuke Matsuzaka for his outstanding performance. 7 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 HR, 3 BB. He shut down a formidable Blue Jays lineup.
