Red Sox Walk Off Again (6-9)

Yesterday, the Sox walked off again, this time on a double by Kevin Youkilis in the 12th inning. This game was definitely an offensive one as the Red Sox pulled through to an 8-7 win over Texas. J.D. Drew (right) went 1-5, but that 1 hit was so big. He hit a grand slam that wrapped around the Pesky Pole in the 3rd inning against Matt Harrison. Josh Beckett had a rough start, he allowed 7 runs in 7 innings, he is now 1-0/5.26/17 in his first 4 starts. Mike Lowell hit his first home run of the year making an even better run to be full-time DH as he is .375/1/2 over David Ortiz's .146/0/2. The defense was much better last night as neither team made any errors, plus the Sox only allowed 3 stolen bases, rather than 9 on Tuesday night. The Red Sox are on a roll and I hope Clay Buchholz can keep it up tonight and the Sox can sweep.
