Key 8th Inning Wins Game (13-14)

Yesterday the Red Sox rode a key 4-run 8th inning to a 5-1 victory over the Angels. Jon Lester threw a gem, allowing 1 run through 8 innings, he is now 2-2/3.93/37 as he has really turned a tough start into being a solid pitcher. Jeremy Hermida (right) got the key hit, a 3-run, bases-loaded double off the Green Monster in the bottom of the 8th, he is now .255/3/13 as he (in my opinion) is the best backup outfielder in baseball. Mike Lowell (double) and Victor Martinez (single) each had RBI hits as well, but Hermida's was the standout. Tonight should be an interesting game as long-time Angel John Lackey faces the Angels. This year, Lackey is a respectable 2-1/4.50/17. The Sox will face Joel Pineiro (2-3/5.76/16). The Red Sox have a modest 2-game win streak that they look to improve tonight.


  1. If Lackey beans Hunter tonight, then I will officially forgive JL for all of his anti-Sox trash talking he did when he was out here in CA. I would also be cool if Lackey barks at Scioscia.


  2. That would be hilarious. I agree
