There isn’t a whole lot to blog about tonight because the Boston Red Sox were almost no hit by John Lackey and the Los Angeles Angels. Lackey shut down the Red Sox for nine innings and he had plenty of offense to get the win in the game while only givine up one hit. Dustin Pedroia came through with a single in the bottom of the ninth inning and then Kevin Youkilis hit a two run home run for the Red Sox two runs.
Clay Buchholz was the starting pitcher for the Sox and he took the loss after giving up six hits and six runs. Five of those six runs were earned as well. Craig Hansen recorded the final two outs of the seventh inning after Buchholz was taken out of the game. Hideki Okajima pitched a scoreless eighth inning and then Jonathan Papelbon came in to pitch the ninth inning without giving up a run.
You have to give it to the Angels and Lackey for almost throwing the no-no, they had the Red Sox number tonight.
