Indians Rough Up Masterson, Win 9-2

First, let me address news that Jerry Remy is suffering from complications due to recent lung cancer surgery. I’ve been watching the Red Sox for some 15 years, and about 99% of the games were announced by Remy as the color-commentator. To me, he embodies Red Sox Nation, and he will be sorely missed. I know I can speak for all of us at Sports of Boston in wishing Remy a speedy recovery. Get well Rem-Dawg!

Now back to the field, where news wasn’t very good either. Former Red Sox prospect and Yankees disaster Carl Pavano has ressurrected himself a bit with the Indians. After a horrible first start (1 IP, 9 ER) in 2009, Pavano has “settled down” a bit, and was impressive against the Sox Wednesday night, tossing six innings and allowing only two runs on six hits and three walks in a 9-2 Indians win.

Victor Martinez led the assault on Red Sox pitching, going 3-5 with a double, HR, three runs, and four RBI’s to improve his season average to .398.

Sox Stud of the Game

Jonathan Van Every, CF: Van Every was one of only two Sox hitters with two hits (Jason Varitek was the other), in going 2-3 with an RBI. Everyman was playing for the injured Jacoby Ellsbury.

Sox Dud of the Game

Justin Masterson, SP: Masterson was bad for the second straight start, giving up six runs on eight hits and three walks in his 6 1/3 innings. The poor start raised his season ERA to 5.28.

Game Notes

W: Carl Pavano (2-3)
L: Justin Masterson (2-2)
S: Aaron Laffey (1)

  • Jason Varitek finished 2-3 and also had a walk.
  • Jeff Bailey grounded into a double play with the bases loaded and no outs in the second. The play scored the a run, but Bailey was not credited with an RBI because he created two outs in the process.
  • The 2-3-4-5 hitters for the Indians (Asdrubal Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Shin Soo Choo, Mark DeRosa) all finished with three hits each.
