Game 4: Red Sox vs Cleveland Indians In-Game Report

Tim Wakefield (17-12, 4.76) vs Paul Byrd (15-8, 4.59)


  • Paul Byrd looked good in the first inning, hitting his spots.
  • Paul Byrd past 76 pitches has guys hitting .377 or higher so the Sox need to work the count.
  • Both old guys are pitching well… this is a nerve racking one. Who will be the first miss his pitch?
  • Pedroia with a nice piece of batting in the 3rd. If Byrd throws it away, hit it away.
  • Ortiz swinging at the first pitch in the 3rd with 1st and 2nd on. As they should be with all of Byrds first pitch fastball strikes.
  • The Sox are going through some major production issues. They just can’t get it done when it matters.
  • Tim Wakefield has a no-hitter through 3 IP but it doesn’t feel like it. Maybe its just me but it feels like it could turn at any point.
  • The hanger Wafefield threw to Peralta is the kind of pitch that makes the game 1-0 or more.
  • And Casey Blake makes that last statement true with a huge home-run to left. 1-0 Cleveland

Beckett should have started tonight… And thats all… Go Sox (5th)

  • Solo shots back to back to start the 6th by Youkilis and Ortiz. It’s a start. Knocking Byrd out of the game.
  • Miserable rest of the game

Post Game Thoughts:

  • Beckett should have started. Seven runs was too much to come back from.. Now its game by game. Have to win them all.
