Red Sox Ride Homers to Victory (2-3)

Last night the Red Sox completely dominated the Royals in an 8-3 win. It was anexpected pitching game as aces Josh Beckett and Zack Greinke squared off but Greinke allowed 4 runs in 6.2 innings, he is now 0-1/3.55/9 this year. Beckett did very well before a tough inning in the 7th as he allowed 3 runs in 7 innings. Beckett is now 1-0/6.17/5 this year. The Red Sox hit 5 home runs in this game, ironically, every one except one of those homers were solo. The exception, a 2-run shot by Pedroia. The bench really came alive in this game as Jeremy Hermida hit a homer and Jason Varitek (right) hit 2 homers in a great night for him. Kevin Youkilis hit a solo homer, his 4th RBI of the season, in a very good night for him. I hope Clay Buchholz and the Red Sox can beat Gil Meche and the Royals today a 2:00 ET.

  1. Good work Sox! And nice to see el Capitan out on the field, even though I would always put Victor in when the going gets tough.
