Boston 9 LA Angels 5..REMDOG UPDATE
The Halos had the best pitcher in all of baseball going for them last night. It was Jared Weaver, who has a minuscule ERA of 0.99 ready to pitch against Clay Buchholz. Clay did well, pitching into the seventh and giving up two runs. But the most dramatic point of the game came on the strength of a tremendous at bat by Pedey Pedroia. In all, Pedroia fouled off nine pitches in a 13-pitch at-bat against previously unbeaten Jered Weaver before lining a go-ahead, two-run single that helped the Boston Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels 9-5 on Monday night. Here's Pedey...
“I faced him a lot in college and the first few years in the big leagues and it doesn’t get any better than him,” Pedroia said. “I haven’t won too many of those, but it was nice to drive in a couple and kind of get things going.”
Big Papi David Ortiz' tater put this contest out of reach even though Wheeler, the 'pen's weakest link, gave up multiple runs. Bard relieved Buchholz and pitched a clean inning. Then Wheeler tried to make the game close but was bailed out by Okajima to end it. I really am having my doubts about Mr. Wheeler.
THERE IS NO CANCER INSIDE JERRY REMY, thank God. This is from the Boston Globe's Extra Bases...

"NESN's Jerry Remy just wrote on Twitter that he will not be part of tonight's broadcast. Doctor just confirmed I have a bit of pneumonia. Suggested we get it under control before doing (the) Red Sox game. It's day by day I guess," he wrote.
Tonight would be the sixth game Remy has missed because of his illness. NESN has filled in with Peter Gammons and Dennis Eckersley and for one unfortunate night in Baltimore, Rick Dempsey."
I just have two words to say...thank God. We love you Jerry. Thanks for stopping in and as alway, BE WELL.
