Red Sox End Skid in Style (5-9)
Last year, the Sox were 2-7 vs the Rangers, making me even more worried about their dismal losing skid. But that skid is the past! They won, largely thanks to Darnell McDonald (right). Pinch-hitting in the 8th inning, he went deep for his first home run in Red Sox uniform (it was his first game in a Red Sox uniform but oh well) that tied the game at 6-6. But in the 9th, he delivered a walk-off single that won the game! The man McDonald hit for wasn't too bad either, Josh Reddick went 1-3 with a 2-run double that should've been just an RBI double but we'll take the extra run. Tim Wakefield had a tough start, he allowed 6 runs in 6 innings and he is now 0-1/6.38/11 in 3 starts. The Red Sox came back from a 2-6 deficit and they won! I can hardly beleive it, although they still need to come back and get a better record, 5-9 is not too great. Tonight, Josh Beckett 1-0/3.86/13 pitches against Matt Harrison 0-1/1.38/7 so I hope they can keep winning!
