Those things that don't happen very often

Well so much for my earlier post, the Red Sox did get something going against the Phillies, giving Don Orsillo another day to talk about an unbeaten streak...

As part of that offense, Josh Beckett hit the first home run by a (current) Red Sox pitcher since Tuesday September 26, 1972 at Fenway, when 20,669 fans saw Martin 'Marty' Pattin hit a 2 run shot in the 2nd inning, as the Sox built a 4-0 lead... before losing the game 6-4 to those American League Milwaukee Brewers.

Any doubt as to who is RemDawgs player of the game?

when you look at the game summary om Yahoo's gametracker and it has Beckett as the offensive player of the day... no, not really.

Just a shame that Francona left him in an inning to long - he had 91 pitches under his belt, and he could have walked away with 7IP, 1 ER, but I think taking him out early in Baltimore stopped him taking him out at the right time last night.
