Boston Red Sox 5 NY Yankees 4
Finally, blogger is back. It was down most of Friday and without it, I was going a little nuts. Game one of the Boston/NY York series is history with the Boston Red Sox, behind Clay Buchholz, a shaky Bard and an almost steady Papelbon, besting the NY Yankees by a score of 5-4. Adrian Gonzalez clouted another home run, this time to right, as did Kevin Youk Youkilis. Yankee Stadium was sold out for the first time since opening day and the fifty thousand plus fans saw a great game. Buchholz was on top of his game, going seven innings and giving up two runs on five hits, walking one and whiffing seven. Here's the Sox manager Terry Francona talking about his starter...
"He threw hard and down with movement, and then he started using his changeup and breaking ball. His fastball had so much depth to it.”
I didn't have a chance with no blogger to post these yesterday so here are the pitching match ups for the next two games...
Sat. 14 at NYY** 7:10 PM ET** FOX* J. Beckett (2-1) vs. C. Sabathia (3-2)
Sun. 15 at NYY** 8:05 PM ET** ESPN* J. Lester (4-1) vs. F. Garcia (2-2)
I like those two pairings. We'll see what happens. I hope your Saturday will be a good one, click on this post's title for more on the game and as always, BE WELL.
