Game 108: July 29, 2008
WinAngels 6 W: John Lackey (9-2) 66-40, 2 game winning streak
Red Sox 2 L: Clay Buchholz (2-6) 61-47, 2 game losing streak
Highlights: Lackey exorcised his Fenway demons last night by turning in a complete game win in which he nearly no-hit the local nine.

I am so sick of the brouhaha around this team. Dustin Pedroia is one of the few bright spots a fan can focus on in the past few days. The spark plug at second broke up John Lackey’ no-no with one out in the bottom of the ninth with firmly smacked single through the hole. Kevin Youkilis launched a homer into the Monster seats to crack the goose eggs in Boston’s line, but that was the sum total of his team offensive production.

There were just three other baserunners: J.D. Drew hit by pitch in the second, Pedroia base on balls in the sixth, and Manny Ramirez’s walk in the ninth after Youkilis’s long ball.

But all the media can concentrate on is Ramirez supposedly dogging it on a ground out to third. Even the normally objective and sedate Tom Caron ripped into the left fielder in the post-game show.
