At Least He Wasn't Wearing a Yankee UniformBy Theomnipotentq
I really thought Lee was going to throw a no-hitter. (I was waiting for the name "Chris Bosio" to surface during the NESN broadcast but fortunately it didn't. He threw the last no-hitter against the Sox, in Seattle in April 1993.)
But Marco Scutaro broke up the no-no in the sixth with a clean single. Darnell McDonald had the other hit, a double in the eighth. But Lee allowed nothing else, and pitched another shutout, his third straight, and extended his scoreless string to 33 innings. Amazing.
Josh Beckett went six innings, allowed all five runs, and took the loss.
And speaking of that team I'm glad he didn't sign with, they won over Milwaukee, 12-2, and now the Red Sox are 1 1/2 games back in the AL East.
Rumors are now flying that David Ortiz will play first base on Wednesday, and Adrian Gonzalez may make his second ever start in right field (the other was in 2005).
BTW, why is it that EVERY TIME the Red Sox play a series in Philadelphia, some dumbass Philly writer has to write a column that I would line my cat's box with about how spoiled the Boston fans are, or comparing how awful both fan bases are? (I won't dignify those columns by placing a link to them.)
Once again, I believe that sportswriters are in the same league with politicans and lawyers in the "trust" category.
