Josh Beckett faces the Marlins this afternoon (box). J.D. Drew is expected to get three at-bats.
Josh Reddick, RF
Julio Lugo, SS
Jason Varitek, C
J.D. Drew, DH
Jeff Bailey, 1B
Jed Lowrie, 3B
Zach Daeges, LF
Chip Ambres, CF
Ivan Ochoa, 2B
Benjamin, Globe:
Brad Penny will get his shoulder checked out by Dr. Tom Gill, who just arrived in Florida. Manager Terry Francona seemed to indicate that it was more precautionary than anything, and that he is not overly worried about Penny.
Out of the Red Sox pen today: Takashi Saito, Hideki Okajima, Manny Delcarmen, Ramon Ramirez, Adam Mills.

I think the only coverage of this game is the Marlins audio at MLB.com.

Jere said...

I recognize that voice! Glenn Geffner on the radio....

Beckett pitches out of a 2nd and 3rd situation in the first.

redsock said...

Dree singles in his first AB.

Jere said...

2-0 us after 2.

redsock said...

Dree is Drew, of course.

Jere said...

Right. Daeges with a dong for the runs.

redsock said...

I wish spring training boxes listed pitch counts.

Jere said...

Three nice innings by Beckett.

Jere said...

Well, after the kinda tough first, he got 1-2-3 in the second and faced just three batters in the third, helped by a caught stealing. I wasn't keeping count, though.

Jere said...

Saito in to start the fourth.

Jere said...

45 pitches, 31 strikes for Beckett per XB.

Jere said...

Saito: a walk and 2 Ks in the 4th.

Jere said...

G-mer in for the fifth. Still 2-0 Boston.

Patrick said...

Maybin is going to be real good.

Jere said...

Cameron Maven with a dong, 2-1. Very weird, long call by the non-Geffner guy.

Jere said...

Sounded like Maven to me:)

Jere said...

Oka gave up 2. 2-2 after 4.5.

Jere said...

Bailey 2B knocks in Lugo and Carter. 4-2 Sox.

Jere said...

Lowrie double knocks in the run with a double. 5-2.

Jere said...

MDC in for the sixth. 5-2 us.

Jere said...

Now a horrible buzzing tone coming from Gameday Audio instead of the game. Actually, it's about as exciting as Geffner. Maybe he shorted out.

tim said...

DAMN it feels like baseball season today! Amazing weather! 61 and sunny....mmmmmm

redsock said...

MDC's inning: 3 singles, 3 K

redsock said...

Ram-Ram allows a run. 5-3 Sox.

Jere said...

nice inning by Mills. We're three outs away from victory.

andy said...

All J's to start the lineup. Awesome.

redsock said...

Water.

Josh Wilker said...

The Marlins' radio guys said that Joe Castiglione was interviewing Joe Castiglione in the booth at one point during the Red Sox broadcast. The latter is the athletic director at Oklahoma (or Oklahoma State), I think.

It's pretty funny that the name that looks odd on our bullpen roster when I read it is "Adam Mills". LOL

I saw that lugo and lowrie both had 2 hits. I was gonna say something about lugo not giving up and doing good. Then I saw the RBI's and remembered that lugo gets hits, sometimes, but they are never for RBI's. Even when he bats 9th.
