Boston Red Sox Win Game 1: Boston Dominates 10-3

C.C. Sabathia was awful tonight. Beckett was great. Boston’s offense was awesome. And after Game 1 Boston has all the momentum and Cleveland needs to start something.

Another News Alert: David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez are still hot. Both had two hits along with Kevin Youkilis. Youkilis, Ortiz, and Ramirez in total scored 7 runs. Awesome for your 2-4. And the starting 4-7 got all 10 RBI.

The one bad Red Sox moment of tonight was Eric Gagne. The numbers he had don’t tell the story. He may not have allowed a run and struck out the side, but loading the bases and working out of it is not a successful inning. Lead the way by Manny and Mike Lowell with 3 RBI.

Tonight, Josh Beckett didn’t pitch a complete game, he didn’t need. After the 3rd inning, Boston was ahead 5-1 and Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz took care of the rest. Beckett still pitched six innings of four-hit ball. After giving up a first inning home-run to Travis Hafner, Beckett retired 10 in a row.

David Ortiz and Manny have been insane this post-season: Ramirez has reached base 11 of his last 12 times since Game 2 of last series, while Ortiz has gone 7-for-9 with eight walks and a hit-by-pitch this post-season. This hitting totals to reaching base 16 of 18 times.

Boston looked awesome in this game. One of the times a team completely dominating is actually exciting for me. The Indians are a great team so I don’t expect this series to be over. Look for Carmona tomorrow to come back strong and give Cleveland a lot better chance to win.

Again, I’ll say Schilling has the experience to keep Boston in the game with a red hot Carmona. While the Red Sox are at home and Game 1 was such an easy win, they should be looking to take the momentum to Game 2 in Fenway.

More to come on the game…

  1. A Man a Fisto (up your A$$) to Cleveland Indian Fans:

    Hey tribe fans instead of cheering for chief wahoo its time to start crying woohoo. Next to those choke artist fom NY what other Northeastern Sports town can be called a city of Champions. That’s Right Boston! Repeat after me cleveland fans, fans from a miserable loosing city, Boston Teams own 24 Pro Sports Championships: 16 from the boys in green the Celtics, and one more for them this year; 3 from our NFL team aptly named the Patriots; 5 from our NHL team the Bruins; and 1, soon to be 2 from the Redsox, after we sweep your sorry indian asses. What does cleveland have 2 World Series Titles from over 6 decades ago, no championships in the NFL era, no NBA titles. cleveland is a city of losers Boston is a city of winners. No more curses we’re the big dogs now. Cleveland is just a bait dog readying Boston up for our next Championship. Those weak as yankee teams got nothing on our Red Sox, now Boston’s the empire a city of championships on steriods. Think those punk as yankees were tough? Not! It’s over Red Sox sweep cleveland! On to our second World Series Title you guys can now be the lovable loosers those. The Red Sox and Boston will forever be the city of Winners. Heck think about it we rocked cleveland and its fake ace yesterday like we’ll rock the mistake by the lake today. Your city is pathetic to have one of your own franchise players such as Lebron James diss you by puttin on a yankee hat. Boston Red Sox 2007 World Series Champions! Get ready to be mowed down cleveland!

    The curse of the bambino is dead and now so are the Cleveland Indians
