Red Sox send Halos "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"

Commander Kick Ass pitched another good one today, going 7 innings, allowing 3 runs on 5 hits, 1 walk, while striking out 5 as the Red Sox beat the Angels 7-3 to complete a sweep of the 3 game series. Beckett earned only his his 2nd victory of the 2010 campaign, his 1st since returning from the DL. The Red Sox have won 6 of their last 10 games.

This game was the 1st in the club's history in which all 4 infielders- Youkilis, Hall, Scutaro, and Beltre- hit HR's in the same game. Scutaro's homer happened to be a grand slam in the 7th inning that broke the 3-3 tie, handing Beckett the victory.

It's looking like the Angels might be done for the season and "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" as they have lost their last 4 games and 8 of their last 10 games bringing them back down to the .500 level once again in a difficult season. They lag behind a very strong Texas Rangers team, and are also behind a resurgent Oakland A's team who beat the Rangers tonight. This is the 2nd series this season that the Red Sox have swept the Angels. Red Sox once again seem to own the Angels.

Sox 7 Angels 3 BOX SCORE

I had the good fortune to play with Stu Allen and Pat Nevins at the 1st Annual Rock and Sox Benefit for The Jimmy Fund and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Here's one for the Angels as performed by Stu, Pat and friends.

Actually, Pat did not play on this song, but he was with the band the rest of the night. Stu sings lead vocals, the guitarist to his right, our left, is Mark Karan. More youtube videos here, and the full show, audio only, here.
