On Tuesday night newly acquired pitcher Japanese pitcher Junichi Tazawa pitched for the Red Sox in his second Major League appearance.
In the top of the 1st with one out, Tazawa beams Miguel Cabrera to load the bases.
Going into the bottom of the 1st Rookie pitcher then hits Victor Martinez with a 3-0 lead.
In the bottom of the second, still with a 3-0 lead Kevin Youkilis steps up to the plate.
Youk gets drilled by Porcello and he would have none of it, Youkilis charged the mound and took down 20 year old Rick Porcello( both would be thrown out of the game) in a benches clearing brawl.
When the game continued my man, Jason Bay stepped into the box with runners on 1st & 2nd, He had a 2 run shot over the Monster to tie it up at 3.
Once again in the bottom of the second with J.D. Drew at first trying to steal second was thrown out on a very close play.
Francona came out to argue the call, right has he was walking away he must have said something to get ejected.
Mike Lowell who replaced Kevin Youkilis at 3rd base got a solo homer in the 3rd and a two run home run in the 5th.
As if this game could'nt get anymore exciting there was a rain delay in the seventh, It was 7-3 Red Sox heading into the 9th with Papelbon on the hill.
Curtis Granderson steps in with a big 2 run jack to make it 7-5 but he would get Placido Polanco for the final out.
Wednesday night The Red Sox put in Josh Beckett (13-4,3.12 ERA) to go up against Armando Galarraga, (6-10, 5.23 ERA)
*** Both Porcello and Youkilis have been suspended for 5 games each, They are going to appeal the suspension
