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.

NOTABLE NOTES

  • Since Philly fans are the most sensible in the entire country, it comes as no surprise that a night after a 17-year old was Tazed for running onto the field at Citizen’s Bank Park another fan would do the same Tuesday night. This fan wasn’t Tazed despite the cries of the fans in the stadium. This just shows the lunacy and idiocy of Philly fans. Every one of them - Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, 76ers fans - should be Tazed upon entering their respective venue. Maybe the electrical currents can snap back a couple of the synapses that have been drowned out by Natty Ice and cheesesteaks.
  • Tuesday night Seattle Mariners’ Milton Bradley was yanked in the sixth inning after taking a third strike with the bases loaded and one out. It is unknown whether something Bradley said made manager Don Wakamatsu take him out, but it is known that he changed his clothes and promptly left Safeco Field. Bradley has now asked the management to help him deal with some personal issues that has hindered the way he competes. I wish I could say something snarky about this, but I really do feel badly for Bradley and wish he can overcome whatever personal demons he has.
