David Wells needed to step up big and he did. He started off slowly but recovered and pitched well enough to go the full 9 but apparently Francona didn't think so. Francona also thought that Millar agaist Mussina would be a better matchup than Olerud against Mussina. Thankfully, neither move cost the Sox the game as they crusied to a 7-2 victory.
Is there anyone hotter than Edgar Renteria right now? Another great night for him in the 2 spot. 4 for 5 with 3 runs scored, doing what a #2 hitter should do. Ortiz and Manny also had awsome days which was necesarry because the bottom of the lineup was held hitless.
The Man of the Game has got to be David Wells who went 8.1 innings, allowing only 2 runs off 6 hits and no walks.
The Red Sox go back to Fenway for a key series with the Baltimore Orioles who lead us by 3 games in the division. Arroyo looks to rebound against nemesis Rodrigo Lopez on Monday. Wade Miller takes on Daniel Cabrera Tuesday night (I have Monster tickets!), and Wakefield goes against Ponson on Wednesday.
