There are some games in which you're beaten and there are some games in which you are really beaten. This was one of those second games.
The Indians scored 3 in the 1st inning off a homerun that came after a walk and an infield single. That was all they needed, but it wouldn't be all that they got.
Pena hit a solo homerun after Mike Lowell grounded into a double play in the 4th.
Victor Martinez got the run back in the bottom half of the inning. He reached on a walk, stole second, got to 3rd on a single, and scored on a passed ball.
In the 6th, Martinez came around to score again thanks to an Aaron F Boone double. The Indians got 2 more off Manny Delcarmen in his first MLB outing of the season.
All and all, a pretty poor night for the Red Sox.
The Man of the Game is Cliff Lee who went 6 innings allowing a sole earned run. He pitched around 4 hits and 4 walks with the help of 2 double play balls, and 7 strikeouts.
Here is the B*tch-Goat:
Wakefield: 0.5 - 5.2 IP, 5 R, 3 ER
Bard: 0.2 - 4 passed balls, 1 for 3
Youkilis: 0.1 - 0 for 4, K
Ortiz: 0.1 - 0 for 3, 2 K, 4 LOB
Lowell: 0.1 - 0 for 4, 3 LOB, GIDP
Beckett against Paul Byrd tomorrow night in the rubber game. I'm too bitter right now.
34 days until Roger Clemens is available to pitch (June 1).
