Beltre's Big Game Helps Sox Sweep Rays (27-21)

Last night, the Sox beat the Rays 11-3, giving them a sweep of the best team in baseball. Adrian Beltre (right) had a monster game, with 2 homers and 6 RBI in a 4-5 game, he is now a very good .341/5/33... and they signed this guy for his glove! John Lackey earned the win with a nice start, allowing 2 runs in 6.1 innings, he is now 5-3/4.84/35). David Ortiz hit a 2-run homer, he is now .266/10/27. Darnell McDonald (.270/3/13) had 2 RBIs and Jeremy Hermida (.230/4/25) had 1 RBI. Tonight, Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-1/5.76/24) pitches, remember his last start, against Brian Bannister (3-3/4.73/31) as they face the Royals in Fenway. Let's hope the Sox can continue this momentum!


  1. How sweet it is! After losing all 3 games to . . . the Orioles (!) a few weeks ago, it's reassuring to see that the boys are back in town.

  2. Nice pitching this week by all the starters. Good to see them scoring runs but the pitching is key to success!
