Lowrie's Bat Helps Red Sox To Victory
I got my wish from yesterday's post. The New York Yankees are now in SECOND place after they lost to the Boston Red Sox by a score of 10-8. It was a hitter's night the whole way through as the pinstripers bashed six (!) home runs and Jed Lowrie went four for four. The pitching? Poor. Josh Beckett, near the end of a season I'm sure he'd like to forget, was lifted with two outs in the seventh inning after allowing five earned runs on seven hits. He gave up four (!!) taters. Not acceptable. Atchison allowed two runs and Papelbon made it unnecessarily close in the ninth. He gave up a run in that frame. Mike Lowell was hit by a bad-bounce ground ball on the right temple. He left the game the next inning and does not show any signs of concussion. He will be further evaluated today. Here's the skipper...
"He's sore. It hit him on the temple. We took him out for precautionary measures because his eye was twitching. But he didn't exhibit any signs of a concussion. We'll certainly keep an eye on him."
Mikey, be well and take it easy. Maybe even take today off. Health is more important than a game, any game. Today, Lester and Nova go at it on Fox and FoxHD just after 4pm EDT. Let's make it two straight. Click on this post's title for more on the Sox and as always, BE WELL. Have a great Saturday.
