Lackey Cruises vs Old Club (14-14)

The Red Sox beat the Angels, 3-1 last night, but there was a bigger story. John Lackey (right) faced his former club for the first time in his life, he was an Angels from 2002-2009. But, he showed no signs of anything but power as he dominated the Angels with 7 innings of 1-run baseball, as he is now a quite good at 3-1/3.89/21. The Sox had two home runs, 1 from David Ortiz, his 4th of the year, and Adrian Beltre had a blast, his 2nd. Adrian Beltre also had an RBI single, he is now a very good .340/2/15 as, though they signed him mostly for defense, he has come through with the bat! Tonight, Daisuke Matsuzaka (0-1/11.57/4) will go against Scott Kazmir (2-1/5.57/19). The Red Sox will be going for a sweep tonight, it would be fantastic if they got one!

  1. I'm having a hard time supporting Papi right now...especially b/c I'm such a huge Lowell fan and Mikey seems to be more consistent. However, I must admit that the elated response of the crowd to Papi's homer last night gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling. Let's hope Ortiz is over the hump.
