The Red Sox (28-27) lost one of their most disappointing games of the year last night in game 1 of the series vs. the Orioles (31-24) and there's a long list to choose from. Jon Lester has to improve. He has been far from an ace so far this season. Despite a clutch 2 run homer from Salty the Sox couldn't find a way to win this one. If they are going to win the series than they need to win tonight's game.
The pitching matchup is RHP Josh Beckett (4-5, 4.26) vs. LHP Wei-Yin Chen (4-2, 3.75). The Sox need Beckett to step up big tonight, just like Salty needs Sox fans to step up and vote for him in the All-Star balloting. The line up tonight should look like this:
Big win for the Celtics last night in Miami...Let's hope they close it out in game 6 on Thursday night!!
