Red Sox take 2 of 3 from the Yankees

RED SOX 1 YANKEES 4

The Sox lost the 1st game when Timlin came in and gave up 2 runs without getting an out. Bucholtz pitched well but the bu;pen let him down as well as the line up the only run coming on JD Drew's solo homer. Drew is hot while Big Papi is not.

RED SOX 4 YANKEES 3

Becket got his 1st win of the year helped by Manny who hit a solo home run and drove in 2 more with a double off Mussina. There was a long rain delay then Pap struck out A-Rod with 2 on and 2 out in the 8th. I got to watch this one at Uncle Mikes in Camarillo, CA.


RED SOX 8 YANKEES 5

Two days in a row I get to watch the Red Sox play on TV!!! This time they cruised to a 7-1 lead before the Yankess Narrowed it to 7-5 but the Sox got an insurance run when Coco singled, stole 2nd, went to third on Lugo's at bat and was driven home by Jacoby's sacrifice fly. Big Papi had the night off to clear his head as he is in the biggest slump of his career. (3-43) Kind of like Lugo last year eh? The Sox are now 1/2 a game behind Toronto and Baltimore.
