Game 2

Tonight felt like Opening Weekend in Boston, not a Spring Training game in Florida. Beckett pitched two innings, settling down after back to back base hits in the first. He ended up getting quite a few ground ball outs which is a good sign.
Papelbon, Okajima, Bard and Ramirez worked scoreless innings out of the pen. Marco Scutaro had a great diving stop at short, and Josh Reddick took away extra bases with a fantastic running catch going deep into the gap in right center.
Tonight's hero was Pawtucket catcher Mark Wagner, who had the game winning RBI in the 8th.
The next two games are day games, and I'm looking forward to a sunny afternoon.
