The Red Sox have now won the first four games of the season against the Yankees, inlcuding Friday night's game in the Bronx. The Sox won 11-4
. Julio Lugo and Kevin Youkilis both homered, and every other player in the lineup got a hit except for J.D. Drew. Dice-K Matsuzaka won the game, pitching six innings allowing four runs. Andy Pettite got the loss after the Red Sox scored five runs on him. Matsuzaka had 7 strikeouts. Timlin, Okajima, and Pineiro also each pitched one inning, all of them recording one strikeout. Through the first three innings, this game looked to be a pitcher's duel. Pettite and Dice-K were playing great. A mistake gave Youkilis a 2-run home run in the third to give the Sox the lead. After that though, both teams started scoring. What was once a pitching duel became a hitting clinic, with the Red Sox sluggers as instructors. It's always nice seeing the Red Sox beat the Yankees.
Also earlier today, the Buffalo Sabres defeated the Rangers 3-2
. Buffalo won the game because of some very good third period play. As always, Ryan Miller is amazing.
