John Lackey... WINNER
I was worried for half an inning. Youk made an error and Lackey let up a homer. Sox down 3-0 before they even came to bat. For that space between the top and bottom of the first I thought "Man, the Sox are REALLY going to lose this game."
Then Ellsbury and Pedroia hit back to back homers and I relaxed. The Sox didn't even have the lead after one, but I felt like the 3 run homer basically was a head start.
Now John Lackey won the game. He's 4-0 in his last 4 games. I don't care what other stats you look at. I want my pitchers winning. Lackey is winning. I don't understand how this is happening... the 12 run outburst is a decent explanation.
But keep winning Lackey and you'll win Boston's heart... or at least we'll stop hating you.
