Would The REAL John Lackey Please Stand Up? I Hope He Did Last Night At The Fens
John Lackey was on top of the world last night as he and David Ortiz led the Boston Red Sox to a 6-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. The win evened the two team's season record at nine. My goodness, to lose a season series to the lowly O's would have been completely unacceptable (sorry Faithy). Lackey muted the Baltimore Orioles for seven walk-free innings in last night’s 6-1 win at Fenway Park. The right-hander allowed one run on five hits and struck out five. He earned his first victory since Aug. 23 and he raised his underwhelming record to 13-11. Underwhelming is right but last night he looked like the ace Boston thought they had acquired. Oh well, maybe next year.
Boston has a day off today before beginning a three game set with the New York Yankees in the Big Apple. They need to win 'em all (they have six remaining) and I know the chances of doing that are slim. They'll try their best. That I DO know.
