Red Sox Win For Embree (9-8)

Today the Red Sox beat the Orioles by a score of 6-0 making them 9-8 this spring. Tim Wakefield (right) dominated the O's, going 5 shutout innings, giving only 2 hits and striking out 3. He is now 2-1/3.29/5 in 13.2 innings. Marco Scutaro and Kevin Youkilis both hit home runs, including a 2-run shot by Youk. Peter Hissey got 2 RBIs in this game after coming in for Jacoby Ellsbury. Daniel Nava also got 1 RBI in this game. The Sox overall played very well to break that awful 5-game losing skid. You may be wondering why it says "Red Sox win for Embree" as the title. Well, the Sox signed Alan Embree to a minor league deal. If you don't remember- Embree was on the World Series winning 2004 Red Sox, that year he went 2-2/4.13/37. I would like Embree but he is 40, then again, Brian Shouse is 41.
