Weekend Sweep

The Sox are looking just fine here in the very part of the season. I had my doubts going into it but I am pretty impressed so far.
Friday night in Baltimore should have been sponsored by some sort of charity. They would have made a lot of money off of all the walking that was going on. The O's had 6 walks in the first inning alone and there was lot's of runs that scored due to walks for the whole night. The final score was 14-8. The only bad part of the game was the 8 runs that we gave up late. Clement pitched a very solid game into the 7th and then he gave up 4 runs. Some new reliever guy came in for the 8th and also gave up 4 runs. That was not exciting. We did win though, that's nice.
Saturday was an interesting event. It was crappy and rainy to say the least. Trisha and I had great seats on the right field line. The game was supposed to start at 4:30 but was delayed until 6pm. Trisha had a bad reaction to something and we had to leave after the first inning. Schilling pitched another great game and we won a 2-1 pitching duel. Paperboy did another fine job closing the game out.
Sunday was Wake's chance at redemption from last week and he did very well. He gave up a run in the first then was rock solid. He even go out of some pretty tight jams including one where the O's had runners on 1st and 3rd with no out. He struck out the next three. Foulke pitched a solid 8th inning and Paperboy closed it out again.
The 5-1 Sox open the Fenway season today with Beckett pitching. Should be a lovely Tuesday in Boston.
