The Red Sox just keep on rolling getting their third win and series sweep against the Los Angeles Anaheim California ahh hell some team from California got spanked. Josh Beckett took the hill today and with the exception of drilling Vlad and giving up a dinger to Orlando Cabrera he looked dominant. Beckett went 6innings 1Run 1ER 1BB and 5K’s not bad for only 6 innings. I am guessing he probably could have went 9 but Tito had to get some work for the guys in the pen seeing as they have not been needed for the last 3 games. Okajima got some work in today and check out his line 1IP 2K’s no runs 9 pitches 8 for strikes. I think this guy is a welcomed change of pace to the bullpen and he’s a lefty.
In other news Willy Mo Pena got the start today and proceeded to strike out twice in 3 at bats ending the game 0-3. It’s nothing of concern seeing as he has not been getting anytime at the plate. We’ll have to see how and for how long this experiment last before another change is made.
The Sox are off to Toronto for 3 games before returning to the friendly confines of Fenway for a 3 game set against the Yankees. Now the Yankee series should show us alot about our pitching and offense. The Yankees starting rotation has been devastated by injuries so it’s gonna be interesting to see what they trot out to the mound. I’ll say it before I get inundated with emails yes the Yankees have a good line up and you can’t count them out. Ok are you happy now ? Now go check out the links on my blogroll.
