The Red Sox had gotten swept by the Rays in a 4-game series at home earlier this season and the Rays stood with a best record in baseball. But the Red Sox invaded the Rays' home ballpark and beat them 6-1! Clay Buchholz (right) was masterful, allowing 1 run over 6 innings, striking out 8. He is now a very good 6-3/3.07/43 as he is their best pitcher without a doubt. The Red Sox hit 2 home runs, one by David Ortiz (.256/9/23) and another by Kevin Youkilis (.321/10/29) as they are both on rolls. Dustin Pedroia had a 3-5 day, scoring a run; he is now .270/8/25 as he has been having a tough time of late. Tonight, Jon Lester (4-2/3.47/63) goes up against James Shields (5-1/3.08/66) as it should be a good pitching game. I hope the Sox can advance some games against the Rays in this series.
