Halladay Dominates Red Sox in 3-1 Win

Sunday afternoon against the Red Sox, Roy Halladay might have made his final start with the Blue Jays, and he made it a good one. The subject of some big trade rumors, Halladay played very well on a big stage, giving up just six hits and one run with seven strikeouts in a complete game effort.

Jon Lester pitched well too in seven strong innings, allowing just three runs. He allowed five hits and four walks, but also struck out six batters in the game. Rod Barajas drove in all three runs of Lester, with a two-run double in the second inning and a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning.

Sox Stud of the Game

Kevin Youkilis, 1B

Youk went 2-4 and had the only extra-base hit for the Red Sox. David Ortiz gets the consolation prize here, for driving in Boston’s only run of the day on a sacrifice fly.

Sox Dud of the Game

Nick Green, SS

Maybe he needs Lugo around to give him pressure? Green started at SS, and went 0-3 with three strikeouts.

That’s What He Said

“I stand by what I said the other day,” Francona said of Halladay. “They should have traded him the other day, and to a National League team.”

Game Notes

W: Roy Halladay (11-3)
L: Jon Lester (8-7)

  • Mark Kotsay stole his second base of the year. Wow!
