Lackey Wins Stellar Start (4-4)

Today, the Sox beat the Twins in a 6-3 victory. Dustin Pedroia unloaded on his 4th home run of the year, which is amazing since it took him nearly 200 at bats to get 2 homers last year. He is doing great, he has a line of .364/4/10 as he is definitely the team MVP. John Lackey (right) allowed 2 runs over 6.2 innings in a great start, he is now 1-0/1.42/5 this year in a great way to open up the season. Jeremy Hermida got the major clutch hit with the Sox resting Jacoby Ellsbury again. He had a 3-run double in the 8th that basically sealed the win. Marco Scutaro continued his good hitting in the leadoff spot, going 2-5 with an RBI, he is now .444/0/1 in the leadoff spot and .320/0/2 overall. I'm enjoying a 4-4 record, it isn't great but last year, 8 games into the season, they were 2-6, so I'll take 4-4 any day!

  1. Wow, wish I'd seen it. I did stumble across the Yankees Angels game late the other night on international TV here in Stockholm -- at least got a little taste of baseball. Sounds like Lackey is going like gangbusters -- what a great acquisition! And Petey (Pedroia) is keping it up. Se you soon!
