Boston Massacre

The last time the Yankees faced Josh Beckett was game six of the 2003 World Series. Fans might remember the 2-0 shutout, Jorge Posada grounding out to Beckett for the final out of the series.
Then again, some fans still remember last night, when the Yankees got revenge. I had predicted a very good game, a pitchers duel if you will, it was nothing but.
Yankees scored first and always putting up one in the first on a crazy play. Melky Cabrera was on first base, but due to a wild pitch, reached second, then catcher Jason Varitek threw wildly at second but skiddered away allowing Cabrera to reach third. Third Base coach Larry Bowa told him to score seeing as Varitek was backing up the third baseman leaving home plate vacant. The throw to the plate was also wild thus scoring Melky.
In the second, all hell was released. Andy Phillips and Jason Giambi led the scoring with e three-run home run each. Beckett lasted onlt 1 1/3 innings, his shortest outing ever. The Yankees added five more in the third off Jermaine Van Buren as Cabrera and Robinson Cano each had two RBI doubles.
Unlike Beckett, Mussina was dominate giving up five runs, four earned while striking out eight. His final strike out tied him with Jack Morris for ninth all-time in the American League with 2,478.
Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth after being out due to back spasms.

Final Score:
Yankees 13, Red Sox 5

Up Next:
Red Sox @ Yankees 7:03 EST
