GAME 74 : RED SOX vs. PADRES

A classic game featuring a meeting between the two best pitchers in baseball this year, Beckett and Jake Peavy of the Padres. We had a tag sale so we listened to the game on the radio out on the front lawn. Gamma, Gaelen and me were cheering every pitch and entertaining Ambiana in between. Youk was sitting this one out so no YooooouK for her to cheer for.

The Sox went up 3-0 as Big Papi made a great slide in the third inning. Ortiz, Manny and Lowell all had RBI hits in that inning.

The Padres came back with 2 in the 5th and the Sox got a big insurance run in the 8th when V-Tek slammed a solo homer to right-center. Beckett pitched 8 strong innings striking out 8 and then Pap came in for the 9th, struck out 2 and notched his 18th save!!!
