Don't look now, but Daisuke Matsuzaka is making this Red Sox team scary good.
Dice-K pitched six solid innings and earned his third win since coming off the disabled list with a 6-2 victory over the Indians on Friday night.
Matsuzaka gave up two runs on five hits and three walks in his outing. He struck seven while throwing 105 pitches. He ran into trouble in the 5th by giving up three runs on three hits and two walks, but he was able to work out of it.
The offense was solid behind Dice-K, picking up six runs on eight hits. Victor Martinez and Jason Bay each had two hits, while Kevin Youkilis had two RBIs thanks to a double in the 8th.
Billy Wagner, Ramon Ramirez, Daniel Bard and Takashi Saito combined for three innings of scoreless relief.
Another win against a lowly team. Hey, at least we get the Indians at the end of the year, right? Someone has to play a team with no real future and no real manager. It might as well as be the Sox.
Two more with the Indians. Last weekend of regular season baseball, folks! Soak it in while it lasts. Then it's postseason ... get excited.
