The Sox go for the sweep in this annoyingly timed getaway game. The Red Sox hand the ball to Josh Beckett, making his second start off the disabled list. Hopefully it will at least resemble his first, just a bit longer. After all, no Bard or Papelbon for the Sox tonight. They're gonna need a ton of runs, or 8+ innings from
Papelbon Beckett to have a real shot.
|2010 - Josh Beckett||1-1||9||9||0||0||0||0||51.1||62||41||38||6||22||45||6.66||1.64|
The Angels finally throw someone who isn't an ace in Joel Pineiro.
|2010 - Joel Pineiro||10-7||20||20||3||1||0||0||131.1||140||62||61||13||32||83||4.18||1.31|
Or not! So much for Joel! It's bullpen game time!
|2010 - Scot Shields||0-3||32||0||0||0||0||1||33.2||36||25||21||4||25||31||5.61||1.81|
Unfortunately, the Red Sox are back to looking like a Triple-A team. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the batter's box...
