Red Sox Fans

Oct. 7, 2004

Setting themselves up for the most historic postseason run in baseball history, the Red Sox beat the Anaheim Angels (They were Anaheim then, right?) 8-3, sending them to Fenway Park with a 2-0 advantage in their best-of-five AL Division Series.

Pedro Martinez worked seven innings, allowing three runs on six hits. The bullpen, perhaps the Red Sox’ least appreciated actors in 2004, blanked the Angels for three innings. Anaheim did little against Mike Timlin, Mike Myers and Keith Foulke.

Jason Varitek homered, Manny Ramirez had two doubles and two RBIs, and the spiritual leadere of the self-proclaimed Idiots, Johnny Damon, had a pair of hits and a pair of stolen bases.
