Dice-K Untouchable in Fantastic Return

Last night, Daisuke Matsuzaka started his first MLB game since June 19, and was 1-5 with an 8.23 ERA, but after 6 shutout innings against one of the best teams in baseball it is now 2-5 with a 7.02 ERA. Daisuke was able to do something the Red Sox haven't been able to do all season, beat the Angels as the Sox opened up the series with a 4-1 win. Although, I wouldn't look ahead highly, whenever the Sox have played the Angels this year, they have almost always won the first gaame of the series, and lost the next two. The Angels are actually barely better than the Sox, the Angels are 86-58, and the Sox are 85-58, but the Angels lead the AL West and the Sox lead the Wild Card by 5.5 games, but are in Second Place by 6.5. Paul Byrd (1-1) goes up against Joe Saunders, (13-7) hope the Sox can beat them!


  1. Hats off to Dice-K and glad to see him back in action after the long stint on the DL. Great game last night too -- Alex Gonzalez has really been performing for the Sox. What a great acquisition he's been!

  2. Who's leading the world series?
