Sox 4/16/2006 - Seattle

ESPN Box Score

Mariners - 002 000 000 - 2  7 2
Red Sox - 200 100 00X - 3 5 2
Quote: Beckett "is anybody else's number one," Seattle's Richie Sexson said. "We had our hands full today."

That sums it up pretty well. Beckett got the big outs when he needed them again, the team played just well enough to win, and once again Willy Mo misplayed another fly ball. A good start for the Sox in the first, scratched out another run in the 4th after Seattle had tied it and smooth 8th and 9th innings by Timlin and Papelbon.

Yankees won to stay two games back tied for 4th with Toronto, yes, I said Toronto not Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay is tied with Baltimore for 2nd, 1 1/2 games back. I kind of like the standings the way they are and I notice that the AL East is the only division in baseball where all of the teams are .500 or better. It could be a very interesting season in the AL East this year.

Am working on stats for men on 3rd with less than 2 outs and LOL's, I hope to have those completed today and will try to have them up on the side. Will see how this works, as I took the day off today to work around the house. Spring appears to have finally taken hold.
