Red Sox 2008 Game 62 Recap

As the shower crisis continues!

Got a chance to catch most of the game as the family loaded up and went to the in-laws to take showers and relax. Of course it was the in-laws so, well, you figure it out!

W: J. Beckett (6-4) L: E. Jackson (3-5)

☼ Sun - Pitching - Beckett went six innings allowing only one run and seven hits, followed by Delcarmen (three K's), Okajima (one hit, two K's) and Hansen (one walk). All four pitchers struck out ten Rays and only walked one. Liking that!

☁ Cloud - Clashes - Pedroia was loud and upset with the home plate umpire, Coco with a rough (but clean slide) and just general nastiness. If you are going to talk, make sure you walk the walk.

Game thoughts!

Drew continues to be hot as he went two for three again and drove in the second run of the third inning. Ellsbury is also starting to show signs of life as he went two for five. With Papi out, these guys and others need to continue to step up and perform.

Really, after the third inning you just felt that this game was well in hand. Beckett seemed to be in perfect command and normally would have went out for the seventh inning, but he caught / slipped on a delivery (my heart stopped) in the sixth and even though he said he felt fine, Francona just said, screw it I'm pulling you!

After the Coco situation, I expect the game on the 5th to be quite chippy and oh yeah, don't dig in to deep Coco, because I fully expect you to be thrown at in the final game.

♊ - Morbid and creepifing I can handle as long as we do it quiet like.
