Boston 4 LA Angels 2 (11)...Beckett Sharp, 'Pen Perfect
It was all good for the Boston Red Sox on the left coast last night as the Sox took game one of four by a score of 4-2. Josh Beckett shined again, not even giving up a hit until the sixth. It was a tight game throughout but Boston scored two big runs in the eleventh and Papelbon made them stand up for the win. Adrian Gonzalez was the author of those game winners with a double in that inning. Beckett went eight innings followed by Walker, Bard and Paps for an inning each. Boston left runners on base seemingly in every inning but in the end, they prevailed. Needless to say, I fell asleep in the seventh inning. The news was great this morning when I heard they had another win in the bag.
The two teams battle again tonight at 10pm EDT with Lester ready to face Haren. Let's take another from the Halos, please guys. Click on this post's title for more on the team and as always, BE WELL.
