Sox beat up M's in series finale

Red Sox - 9
Mariners - 2

W: Beckett (14-5)
L: Batista (11-8)

The Red Sox killed the Mariners today. Some nice defensive plays and a big last three innings from the offense really put this game away. Eight players on the Sox got RBI's as Manny Ramirez led the way with a home run and 2 RBI's. Josh Beckett struck out nine over 6 2/3 allowing only a single run and absolutely dominated Seattle hitters. The only player without a hit on the Sox was Jason Varitek who went 0 for 4. Okajima, Delcarmen and Snyder all did their part to finish the game coming out of the bullpen. The Red Sox won the series 2-1 and will head to Los Angeles tommorow to take on the Angels. Curt Schilling will come off of the disabled list and make his long awaited return. First pitch should be at approximately 10:05 PM EST. On a side note, I'd like to complain about the Moose that attempted to run Coco Crisp over in an ATV. Those kind of things are immature, irresponsible and absolutely ridiculous. Sure, make fun of the team, get the crowd into it but leave Coco alone.
