Daisuke Matsuzaka picked up his 11th win of the season and improved to 11-1 as he 7 1/3 innings and the Boston Red Sox defeated the Seattle Mariners 4-2.  It was another good win for the Red Sox out in Seattle as they have now taken the first two games of the three game series and will be looking for the sweep on Wednesday.

It was a quality start for Dice-K as he gave up five hits and two runs.  He did walk three batters but struckout six others.  His era now sits 2.63 after the game.

Hideki Okajima recorded the final two outs in the 8th inning after Dice-K left the game.  Jonathan Papelbon recorded his 30th save of the season as he shut the door on the Mariners in the 9th inning.  Great job by Okajima and Papelbon.

J.D. Drew went 2-3 with a solo home run and a rbi sac fly to lead the team with two rbi.  Drew has been on fire as of late and is really swinging the bat very good.  Mike Lowell hit a rbi double while Jed Lowrie added a rbi sac fly.  Both Lowell’s and Lowrie’s rbi’s came in the 5th inning.

I like the Red Sox chances Wednesday afternoon to pick up another win and sweep the Mariners.  What do you think about the game?
