Red Sox 07 Game 41 Recap


Atlanta 0000003003 101
Boston 12004510x13 180
MLB.Com Press Pass for this game is here.
W: D. Matsuzaka (6-2, 4.06); L: A. Lerew (0-2, 7.71)
HR: ATL: J. Francoeur (7). BOS: M. Lowell (8), K. Youkilis (5), J. Lugo (3), W. Pena (3).

  • Hero - Mike Lowell, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Julio Lugo, Big Papi? Take your pick, this game was a slaughter and myself, I think I will go with Youkilis. His two run bomb basically ended the start of Lerew.
  • Goat - The Atlanta staff (see above).

Idle thoughts

Daisuke was basically cruising most of this game. 18 pitches after 2 innings, 27 after 3 innings, 43 after 4 innings, 56 after 5 innings and 67 after 6 innings.

How hot is Lowell? In the last 7 days, 5 games with a .412 BA. That was before today's 4 for 5.

Ortiz, Manny, Drew and Lowell were a combined 10 for 15 today with 7 runs and 5 rbi's. Thats a .667 average.

Lugo, Crisp and Pedroia were 5 for 13 with 4 runs and 5 rbi's for a .385 average.

Right now in the bottom of the 2nd its Mets 4 and MFY 2 with 2 outs. If this holds up Sox would have an 11 game lead. Caught stealing costs the Mets another run as Beltran hits a bomb towards left that Matsui catches for the last out of the inning with a man on third.
