Scarlet Fever

A teenage girl's perspective on the Red Sox and everything else.

Rainy Tuesday

The first pitch Josh Beckett threw was hit for a leadoff triple, and it was all downhill from there. The Tigers got three runs in the first, and two in the third, and though Beckett didn't give up any more runs for the rest of his night, Terry Francona must have already kissed the game good-bye by the time Beckett was done, because he put in Rudy Seanez. Seanez helped the Tigers put the game out of reach by giving up two runs, and though Craig Breslow relieved Seanez in an impressive fashion, it was too late for the Sox hitters, battling the best pitching staff in the majors. Paired with a Yankees win, our loss put us another game out of first. But with Schilling on the mound tonight I have confidence that we can win this one. After all, the Tigers haven't been quite as dominant since the All-Star break.
