Up & Down, All Or Nothing, Win And Then Lose Red Sox Fall Again To Texas

Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched well in a close game but when Tito Francona had to go to his bullpen, the Texas Rangers, 7-3 winners, broke it open with four runs. Manny, Manny Manny. Here he is..

“I just hung a changeup,’’ Delcarmen said. “Going in, I know he’s a first-pitch-swing guy. With runners on, it’s not the right time to hang a change-up. It’s a little frustrating. We end up scoring three in the very next inning, so it kind of stung a little bit. Dice was battling the heat all day and pitched his butt off.’

Boston finishes this latest road trip at 5-5 which just about sums up their season. Win one, lose one...heck, let's lose two! I'm still a little bitter about the black cloud of injuries that has hovered over the team all season long. I hope it doesn't come back next year. My goodness!

The Red Sox have traveled back to Boston and will start their homestand off with a three game set aginst the LA Anaheim Angels Tuesday night. Here are the details...

Tue. 17* LAA 7:10 PM ET FoxW/NESN** Buchholz (13-5) vs. Weaver (11-7)
Wed. 18 *LAA 7:10 PM ET FoxW/NESN** Lackey (10-7) vs. Kazmir (8-10)
Thu. 19* LAA 7:10 PM ET FoxW/NESN** Beckett (3-2) vs. Santana (12-8)

That's it for this Monday in the middle of August. For the Sox to qualify for post season play, they'll have to step it up a notch, maybe two. Pedey will be back Tuesday but the loss of Youkilis still really hurts. You can click on this post's title for more on the Red Sox and as always, BE WELL.
