GAME 11: RED SOX vs. ANGELS

If the weather had cooperated I would have heard about this game secondhand along the route to Boston but as it was i was home and able to listen to the game on the radio. Becket gave up a 1st inning home run to "Forever-A-Red-Sox" Orlando Cabrera and knocked Vlad Guerrero out of the game by hitting him on the wrist with a pitch then the Sox came back and scored 6 runs in the bottom of the 1st on RBI hits by Youk, Manny, Lowell and Alex Cora to put the game out of reach. Becket went 6 innings, allowed 6 hits and 1 run and struck out 5 to go 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA.

Julio Lugo went 2-4 and made a great basket catch in left-center while running away from home plate. No Red Sox porch again today as it was wet and cold out, hopefully we get some Red Sox Porch weather soon! The Sox swept the Angels, outscored them 25-3 in the 3 games at Fenway, improved to 7-4 and are in 1st place half a game ahead of the Blue Jays whom they open a 3 game series with tomorrow in Toronto.
