LAst Night's Action: Revenge of the Lackey
Boston Red Sox defeat LA Angels 3-1. Red Sox starter and former Angel John Lackey pitched a jewel of a game against his former team allowing only a home run by Brandon Wood in the fifth inning in his seven innings of work. Angels’ starter Joel Pineiro had a trickier time of things despite giving up only two runs in his six innings. The game even saw a David Ortiz sighting in the fourth inning when he hit a solo homer lifting his batting average to .171 and giving the Red Sox the 2-0 lead. Oh and look who has started to well once I got rid of him on my fantasy team? Yes, Adrian Beltre belted a solo shot off of Brian Fuentes in the eighth inning. The Angels will now try to salvage one game out of this four-game series tomorrow against Daisuke Matsuzaka making his second appearance of the year after giving up seven runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Baltimore Orioles on May Day.
Milwaukee Brewers defeat LA Dodgers 11-3. Read my recap of the game.
LA Galaxy defeat Colorado Rapids 1-0. Alan Gordon scored the only goal in the game for the Galaxy in the 21st minute on an assist by Landon Donavan.
Chivas USA defeat New England Revolution 4-0. It looks like the scoring problems the Red and White had to start the season have dissipated. Then again playing with a man-advantage since the 29th minute when Marko Perovic was issued a red card on a hard foul helps things out also. Jesus Padilla scored twice in the 26th minute and 48th minute, and Justin Braun scored in the 33rd minute for the 3-0 advantage. Rookie Blair Gavin added a goal in the 81st minute, the first in his career, for the 4-0 win. The 4-0 victory was the largest road victory in team history.
