Redsox at Astros, Kissimmee, FL

I was able to catch the Redsox vs Astros in Kissimmee, FL. Again the game was sold out due to the Redsox being there. I managed to find a ticket behind the Astros dugout for $35. Parking was $5.
Again, David Ortiz did not make the trip. This was a split squad game. Varitek, Youkilis, Ellsbury, and Pedroia were there though.
Ace Roy Oswalt started for the Astros and shut down the Redsox. The final score was 3-0 in favor of the Astros.Dustin Pedroia, 2007 AL Rookie of the Year, 2008 AL MVP, 2009 Silver Slugger and Gold Glove winner for 2B.
