Red Sox vs Phillies recap

Chicks dig offense.

The Red Sox took game two against the Phils on Saturday night with an 11-6 victory. The Sox scored five runs in the first inning before rain came and delayed the game. No matter though, as the Sox added on more for their fifth win in a row.

Daisuke Matsuzaka wasn't very good in the start. He lasted just four innings (91 pitches), allowed four runs, seven hits, a walk and struck out three. I guess Dice-K hasn't figured it all out yet. Hopefully he will soon, because we can't keep dragging his 2.10 WHIP along with us.

But the real story is the offense. Jason Bay and Jacoby Ellsbury each had home runs. Mike Lowell went 3 for 4. Ellsbury finished 2 for 3 with two runs, two RBI and three walks. Yes, three walks. Julio Lugo -- yes, that Julio Lugo -- went 4 for 5. Finally some offense from the shortstop position.

The Sox look for back-to-back sweeps tomorrow with Josh Beckett on the hill. The Phills will send out J.A. Happ.
