Forgettable Friday night in Boston sports
The Red Sox kicked off a three-game series tonight against their
forever rivals, the Yankees. it was a potentially great pitching
matchup with ace Josh Beckett taking on young gun Phil Hughes, who has
been electric this season. Beckett was strong early, but faltered in
the fourth and sixth innings. The Yankees cruised to a 10-3 win.
was a whole lot going on for a Boston sports fan tonight, but none of
it turned out well. The Celtics were a couple of miles down the road
at the Garden taking on the Cavs in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference
Semifinals. But the have owned this game from start to finish en route
to a 124-95 thumping of the Celts.
Then you have the Bruins,
who were trying to sweep the Flyers and advance to the Conference
Finals for the first time since 1992. But the B’s lost in OT.
