Red Sox Lose Heartbreaker (1-1)
Last night, the Red Sox lost a very tough game to the Yankees. The Yankees scored because Marco Scutaro made a very costly error in the 8th inning. Jon Lester was doing great until the 5th inning. He allowed 1 run through 4 innings, but then allowed 3 in the 5th. He had the no-decision and now has a 7.20 ERA which I can handle in the first few games, but only the first few games. This is a guy who went 15-8/3.41/225 last year and is the ace of the staff. The Red Sox had some pretty impressive hitting mainly by one player- Victor Martinez. He went 2-3 with a homer (right) and 3 RBI and was definitely the Red Sox' MVP of that game. Jacoby Ellsbury stole his first base and hit his first double in a 2-5 game for him. All in all, it wasn't a bad game. At least the Sox aren't any worse than the Yankees, both are 1-1.
