Red Sox 2008 Game 66 Recap


Press PassBox Score Play - by - PlayGame Recap

W: J. Masterson (3-0) L: S. Green (3-5) S: J. Papelbon (18)
HR ➢ Bos: J. D. Drew (8)

☼ Sun - Drew for the offensive support and Masterson for well being masterful.
☁ Cloud - None, zip, nada, a very clean game by both teams.

Game thoughts!

The offense was provided by Drew who knocked in the first Sox score by getting hit by pitch while the bases were loaded. The second run came off of his home run to deep center field after Bedard was lifted in the sixth.

It was a hot day in Boston and the game moved pretty quickly, both Masterson and Bedard were good, but Justin was just enough better for the Sox to win this game as Bedard was gone at the beginning of the sixth inning. You can thank Dustin for that as in two at bats he faced 19 pitches. On a 98 degree day, 99 pitches was enough for the left handed Bedard and the Sox were able to make the lead (once they took it) last as Hansen, Okajima and Papelbon were lights out.

Okajima and the Bot only faced six batters and retired the side in the 8th and 9th on fourteen pitches (9 and 5). A good way to finish the series against the Mariners.

Factoid - Masterson is the first Red Sox pitcher to not lose a game in his first four starts at Fenway.

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