Schilling and Red Sox Roll-Up Rockies, Onto Coors

Schilling, Okajima and Papelbon are all the Red Sox needed tonight. That and two runs scored by the offense. When the offense had easily carried the team when Beckett wasn’t pitching, its refreshing to see the pitching hold down the game. The last game Schilling started he got 10 runs of support. Easily enough to win the game.

Schilling went 5.1 IP with 4 H, 1 ER, and 4 K’s. Okajima went 2.1 dominant innings getting 4 K’s without allowing a hit or walk. And Papelbon closed out the game by going 1.1 IP with 2 K’s. Needless to say the pitching was great.

The hitting star of the game was Mike Lowell who went 1/3 with a double, a great 1st to third run, and one of the two RBI’s in the game. Also of note is JD Drew who went 2 for 2 with a walk and a hit by pitch. In other words he reached in every at-bat.

The Sox looked good and their magic number is down to 2 games.

Best team in baseball? I’m thinking so.

The next game is Saturday where Daisuke Matsuzaka faces Josh Fogg at 8:35 pm.

Notes:

  • Thanks to Jacoby Ellsbury stealing a base in the 4th, everyone in America gets a free taco on October 30th from 2-5 pm.
