Josh Beckett was completely dominant in his second outing of the season, throwing 8 shutout innings, and striking out 10, making him 1-1/2.08/14 in two starts. Jonathan Papelbon came in after him, and although it wasn't a save situation, threw a scoreless inning. Dustin Pedroia had yet another great game, going 3-4 and scoring a run. Marco Scutaro (left) had a very good game, goin
g 2-2 with a double, 2 walks, and 2 RBIs last night. Mike Cameron and David Ortiz each had 1 RBI, and Ortiz scored a run as well. Tonight, as the Rays come to town, the Sox will send out Daisuke
Matsuzaka (0-1/5.40/2 up against Jeremy Hellickson (0-1/4.76/10).
Marco Scutaro- 2-2 with 2 RBIs and a double is pretty good
Dustin Pedroia- 3-4 again, with 1 run scored
David Ortiz- 2-4 with 1 run scored and 1 RBI
Mike Cameron- 1-4 with a critical RBI
Josh Beckett- 8 shutout innings, a win, and 10 strikeouts
Jonathan Papelbon- a shutout inning to end the game
Carl Crawford- 0-5 in the leadoff spot
I'm very glad that the Sox won this game and series and I sincerely hope that they keep on truckin' against the Rays.
