G65: Red Sox 4, Cubs 3

Red Sox - 000 201 100 - 4  8  1
Cubs    - 000 000 300 - 3  8  1
Lester (6.2-7-3-1-8, 102) pitched extremely well - striking out six Cubs in his second time through the lineup - for six innings, but was hit for a three-run bomb from Luis Valbuena with one out in the seventh.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia - in his first career start as a cleanup hitter - hit a two-run dong (#12) in the fourth, after David Ortiz had doubled. Salty also doubled and walked. And Ortiz walked twice in addition to his two-bagger.

After a walks to Flo and Salty in the sixth, Will Middlebrooks greeted reliever Randy Wells with an RBI single. In the seventh, Mike Aviles doubled and scored on Scott Podsednik's second single of the night.

Scott Atchison recorded the final out of the seventh. Vicente Padilla breezed through the eighth (L7, K, K) and Alfredo Aceves slammed the door in the ninth (1B, K, 543DP).

Pete Abe , after reading his tweets, i have realized he is an ass. Tweetedvhow the organist was playing duke of earl and the fans were not doing the wave with the team losing. I have no Idea why it upsets him so much when the red sox are down the fans at Fenway still sing Sweet Caroline.

Its baseball Pete stop worrying about little kids singing and when Josh Beckett speaks to the media. His snide remarks are childish, and I tweeted him today to tell him he sounds like an old waiting to tell kids to get off his lawn, and he has no idea how true Red Sox fans think.

He wrote back and told me "his family has had season tickets for 25 years, so theres that. nice try though."

I wasnt trying anything.

PeteAbe's skin is tissue-paper thin. What is amazing is that the Globe doesn't reign him in from being such an asshole.
