Last year (2007 and 2004) don't mean shit

The Angels are good and they're bound to beat the Red Sox in a playoff series at some point in my lifetime.

In game 1 of the ALDS last night at Angel Stadium, John Lackey pitched much better than Jon Lester and Torii Hunter hit a three-run homer.

There's not much else to say about a pretty cut and dry game. Lackey went 7.1 shut out innings, allowing only four hits with a walk and four strikeouts while Lester (6 innings, 3 runs, 4 hits, 4 walks, 5 strikeouts) was doomed by Hunter's bomb.

Lester was able to deftly escape some earlier jams but Hunter came through in the fifth with Erick Aybar and Bobby Abreu (4 walks) on base.

Kendry Morales' RBI single in the seventh inning scored two after Jason Bay's throwing error.

Boston's bats were non-existant as they couldn't do anything against scrub Darren Oliver, who got the last five outs of the game.

Josh Beckett opposes Jered Weaver tonight as the Red Sox try to climb back into the series before they head back to Fenway.
