That was a lot less stressful than I was anticipating.

The Sox beat Cleveland in game 1 of the ALCS 10-3. All you really need to know about this game are these four facts:

1) Josh Beckett was dominant for six innings, giving up four hits, two runs, striking out seven and walking no one.

2) Manny and Papi reached base 10 times in 10 plate appearances, racking up four hits, five walks, a hit by pitch, four runs and three RBI between them. Mike Lowell added three more RBI, cleaning up behind them.

3) Indians ace C.C. Sabathia didn't make it out of the 5th, giving up 8 runs (all earned) in 4 1/3 innings.

4) The Sox felt they were had a sufficient lead in the 9th to bring in Eric Gagne. He promptly loaded the bases before finally striking out Grady Sizemore to end the game.

So the Sox are up 1-0. Schill vs. Carmona tomorrow night.
