Red Sox Beaten By The Best...Toronto 3 Boston 1

Boston was whupped, whipped and beaten by the Jays Sunday afternoon up in Toronto for all the right reasons. The compliments from the Red Sox players and coaches about Toronto starting pitcher Roy Halladay were unanimously positive. Take a look at what manager Terry Francona had to say after the complete game effort...

“Wow,’’ Boston manager Terry Francona said. “Kind of stand by the statement I made the other day. I thought they should have traded him the other day, and to a National League team. You don’t tip your hat during a game because you want to beat him. But that was pretty good pitching.’’

Doc Halladay pounded all parts of the strike zone with a variety of pitches, baffling Boston, who managed one first inning run. But that was it...they were shut down from there. Finis. Caput. Bye bye Canada.

Jon Lester pitched well enough to win most games but two walks and a dinky double gave Doc all the runs he needed. It's turn the page time and on to Texas. GO SOX.

Here are the all important pitching matchups for the upcoming three game set. The games will start at 8:07pm EDT and the pitchers that will try to battle their team to a victory times three are...

Tuesday night...John Smoltz vs. Millwood
Wednesday night...Josh Beckett vs. Tommy Hunter
Thursday night...Tim Wakefield vs. Padilla

GO SOX. You can click on the title of this post for more Sox news and coverage. Thanks for being here, my Constant Readers. See you soon. That's a promise.

And Tom Watson couldn't par the 72nd hole for the win. I just wasn't a very good sports day for me.

Let's hope Smoltz keeps progressing to his best performance tonight. And a few Sox runs would be nice, too.

I was heartbroken about that last 8 foot putt. It never had a chance.

Thanks for the typo error correction.

Nadi say HI. GO SOX. Now and forever.

Halladay, baby. Not even the potent Sox lineup could touch the Doc.

Good day for tom Watson.

Hey Dan. NOBODY could have touched Doc. No one!

Mdeals, I was hoping so much for him to sink that last putt on the 18th. He gave it his all. Who could ask for anything more, but my heart sank.
