Pedro’s Back Liveblog Mets @ Red Sox

Today Pedro Martinez makes a start against his former team the Boston Red Sox, against Josh Beckett, who you could say is in the same role with Schilling that Pedro was. This should be a fun
liveblog. Josh Beckett is looking for his tenth win on the season.

7:10: First out made for Beckett, a good start.Both Varitek and Reyes are back from their collision.

7:14: Three quick outs for Josh Beckett, only 7 pitches, NESN isn’t showing a commercial, and Pedro’s getting his third ovation.

7:15: Now they decide to show a commercial, it’s great what the fans are doing.

7:16: Kevin Youkilis gets to have the pleasure of seeing Pedro first.Images_2

7:29: Problems for the Mets in general so far.

7:33: Pedro got out of the inning only slightly scarred with four runs,could have been more.

Liveblog: Red Sox @ Twins/June 13

I decided I’m going to make an attempt at liveblogging tonights game. Tonight is going to be a great pitching matchup, Curt Schilling vs. Johan Santana . Mike Timlin will be making his return from the Disabled List today, and should be making an appearance in the 8th inning.

8:12: Coco strikes out. Not a good way to start the night.

8:14: Santana gets guys behind in the count fast, the Sox are going to have try to work him deep in the count somehow.

8:15: Loretta strikes out too, I’m starting to think go first pitch swinging.
