Big Papi and Buchholz Nail Tigers (19-17)

Last night, the Red Sox basically smacked the Yankees in the face. The Yankees just lost a 4-game series 1-3 against the Tigers, but the Sox came in and beat the Tigers 7-2. David Ortiz (right) hit 2 homers, including a 450 foot blast to center field, he is now .213/6/15 as he is much better than he was last year at this time. Dustin Pedroia also had a nice game, including a 2-run shot in the 1st inning, he is now .297/8/25 as he has been arguably the best second baseman in baseball this year. Clay Buchholz was also masterful, allowing 1 run in 6.1 innings of work, he is now 4-3/3.46/28 as he has been the ace of the staff. But another ace of the staff, Jon Lester (3-2/3.71/44) goes up against Dontrelle Willis (1-1/3.99/21) as it looks to be a good game. The Sox have momentum!
