In the first game of the series, the Red Sox beat the Yankees in a close game. Both teams had good starters, and many thought that tomorrow’s game would be no different. The game started in an unusual way; Jacoby Ellsbury, leading off the inning by getting hit by a pitch. After Dustin Pedroia moved Ellsbury to third base with a base hit, he stole second base. However, C.C. Sabathia would strikeout David Ortiz, thus ending the inning. The Yankees would get two singles in a row to start the bottom of the 1st inning. Josh Beckett would end up getting out of the inning unharmed. Through the next three innings, Beckett and Sabathia were incredible. However, in the top of the 5th inning, the Red Sox’s hitting was showing signs of life. Before the 5th inning, the Red sox only managed to get one hit off of C.C., a single hit to center field by Dustin Pedroia. Jed Lowrie and Carl Crawford would each get singles. Their singles were sandwiched in between Mike Cameron’s fly out to Nick Swisher. Then, C.C. would walk Jason Varitek on four pitches, loading the bases. Then, Jacoby Ellsbury would hit a double to left field, scoring a pair of runs. The Red Sox would not get anymore runs after an intentional walk and a double play.
Jacoby Ellsbury hit a 2 run double in the 5th inning.
Josh Beckett would remain in the game for 6 innings, giving up no runs, two walks, and striking out 9 Yankees batters. Before Beckett left the game, his lead would increase immensely. After Mike Cameron got a single and took second base on a wild pitch, Jason Varitek came up to the plate. C.C. Sabathia was still in the game, a huge mistake by the Yankees. Varitek would get an RBI single bringing in Cameron and extending the Red Sox lead to 3-0. After Jacoby Ellsbury popped up and Dustin Pedroia hit a single, the stage was set for A-Gon. 2 outs, 2 men on base, A-Gon would guarantee the Red Sox a win with one swing of the bat. In his last 10 games, A-Gon has hit 7 home runs, and he would do the same thing in yesterday’s game, smashing the ball to right field for a three run homer
That was the final run of the game. Matt Albers and Rich Hill would relieve Beckett, giving up no runs in three innings. With that, Josh Beckett got his 3rd win as C.C. got his 3rd loss.
And the Red Sox Win it!!!
