Fatigue?

Which team? Certainly not the Angels, who squeak past the Sox 3-2 on the strength of Paul Byrd's pitching.

Jose Contreras again rewards the faith Ozzie placed in him with a stellar start, 8 strong innings. His one true mistake, a second inning cookie which Garret Anderson drove for a homer, cost him the game. Little things get very big in the postseason.

Game 2 tomorrow, and the Sox would be well served to go to Anaheim tied given their horrendous track record at the Happiest Place on Earth...how does 4-10 in Anaheim since 2002 sound? Not so good, especially when you consider one of those defeats was by a score of 19-0.

Also, Game 3 starter Jon Garland hasn't seen game action in two weeks and already has two losses to the Halos this year. So once again, the pressure is on Mark Buehrle. Good thing he doesn't let it get to him.
