Game Story - 6.30.07: Sox blow 4-run lead, lose 5-4

New, comments

Ellsbury beating out an infield single for his first MLB hit.
THE STARTER:
Josh Beckett was great -- in the first three innings. Beckett received early run support, but not enough to get a win or a no decision. He gave up 5 runs on 10 hits through just 5 innings.

THE 'PEN:

The bullpen was scoreless for another night. Javier Lopez, Kyle Snyder and Mike Timlin combined for 4 scoreless innings of one hit, one walk baseball.

THE LINEUP:

Kevin Youkilis gets a pat on the back for keeping the offense in-check last night. He went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, three walks, and two runs. Alex Cora had two hits and a run. Jacoby Ellsbury, in his MLB debut, went 1-for-4. Ellsbury's hit was an infield single that beat Michael Young's throw to first base. He has blazing speed, for sure.

THE FIELD:

Yay. No errors.


WINNER: Youk
Gotta' give the Mueller to the most electric man in the lineup last night.


WINNER: Everyone who stranded runners on base
I'm almost willing to give the Mendoza to Mr. Beckett, but Beckett surrendered 5 runs but still SHOULD HAVE WON if there were offense behind him. Lowell: 5 LOB, Varitek: 4 LOB, Pedroia: 3 LOB, are the main culprits.
