DICE-K GETS ROLLED
This series is a meeting between the immovable object and the unstoppable force. The Angels are the best road team in baseball. The Red Sox are the best home team. The Angels took round 1 last night, thanks in large part to a 6 run 6th inning Daisuke meltdown.
Five runs should be enough for a win, but Daisuke's meltdown, combined with an additional run allowed by Masterson made that next to impossible. Manny continues to hit well since recovering from that horrific knee injury. He was 2 for 5 with 3 RBI and a homerun.
The Sox fall to 1-5 against the Angels, and have officially lost the season series. The Red Sox hadn't lost a season series to the Angels since 2001.
It doesn't look much better for Tuesday's game. 8-2 John Lackey takes on Clay Buchholz.
