Pressure squarely on Matsuzaka in Game 7
BOSTON -- In the first inning, seconds after beleaguered, momentarily vindicated J.D. Drew had finished rounding the bases after his thunderous first-inning grand slam, the television camera focused on Daisuke Matsuzaka, the same man upon whom everyone who cares about baseball at this late date had trained their eyes.
Hey, it's going to come down to Game 7 against the two teams that won more baseball games than anybody in the regular season, two teams that have beat up on each other a little bit over the course of the past week, and that's the way it should be.
--Indians manager Eric Wedge
