A Fine Day For Boston Ends Badly

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
The day began in triumph for Boston, as the Bruins showed off their Stanley Cup to a million fans on the streets of the city.But as the day progressed, the news just got worse, as Carl Crawford was put on the DL with a hamstring strain. It is not considered serious, and he hopes to return as soon as the 15 days are up.Josh Reddick returned from Pawtucket to take his place.I missed the entire game on Saturday night, as I had tickets to the Brooklyn Cyclones home opener at MCU Park in Coney Island. The Cyclones opened with a win over the Staten Island Yankees in Staten Island on Friday. But the Cyclones bats were shut down on Saturday night and Staten Island pulled out a 3-2 win.I followed the Sox-Brewers game on my cell, and the news was always bad. Jon Lester gave up three solo shots (one to ex-Sox catcher George Kottaras; did I read that right?), two in the first inning, and they trailed for most of the entire night.Milwaukee wound up with a 4-2 win. The news was further lousy when New York and Tampa Bay both were victorious, so the Red Sox now lead the East by 1 1/2 games.Tim Wakefield takes the hill on Sunday to try to get a series win. The Stanley Cup will also be on hand as the Sox will honor the NHL champions before the game.At least they had a memorable day on Saturday.
