Rays Obliterate Matsuzaka And The Red Sox

Daisuke Matsuzaka was torched by the Tampa Bay Rays and he felt so badly about it he apologized to his team and the fans...

"To allow what happened to happen so early in the game, I can really only apologize to my teammates and to the fans."

Boston opened up a 2-0 lead before David Price got an out but believe me, it was all downhill for Boston from there. The final score was a very ugly 14-5. Yes, 14-5! His line looked like this. In 4.2 innings he allowed eight runs, eight hits and four bases on balls while striking out four. UHHH. There's not much more to say about this game than that.

On a bright note, last night marked the return of Jason Varitek. He entered the game for Victor Martinez in the top of the sixth. I didn't expect him back so soon but it was great to see him behind the plate doing what he does best. Welcome back, 'Tek. Mark Scutaro has moved over to second base to protect his rotator cuff. It looks like he's going to tough it out and take care of it in the off season. Thank goodness for the off season. Time to heal. The Boston Red Sox certainly need it.

Tim Wakefield, who is taking over the starting job tonight because there's no reason to start Buchholz on three day's rest after the loss last night, will face Matt Garza at Fenway Park in game three. The fun (?) begins at 7:10pm EDT. Well, I hope it will be fun.

Th-th-that's all for now, folks. Click on the title of this post for all the details and highlights or lowlights of last night's game and as always, BE WELL. I thank you for stopping in yet again. I wish there were more of you but as the Red Sox go, PETER'S RED SOX FOREVER goes.
