When the Red Sox started this 6 game run against the Yankees and the Phillies, I thought 4 wins in that stretch would be terrific.
Last night, the Red Sox went 5-0 and are sending Beckett on the mound to make it another clean sweep.
Yeah it was a little ugly.
Yeah, Dice K still makes me nervous and any game where your team scores 5 runs before the other team comes to bat should NEVER be in doubt.
But it is in the win column.
And I'll always take 4 hit nights from Julio Lugo!
And if the Yankees can feel good about a game won because Luis Castillo couldn't catch a pop up, I'll feel good about this ugly slugfest in Philly.
Beckett tomorrow... playing with house money.
