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.


  1. I was most impressed by Martinez.
    I was least impressed by the umpires. Particularly Angel Hernandez...

  2. It would be nice to see Lackey have a good game and show he's worth that contract. It's way to early in the season but it would have been nice to have won last night. Remember Lester started slow last year and was probably the best pitcher from July on . I expect he will start this year better. Remember we are playing the best the in baseball (on paper).
