5th Inning Keeps Sox Winning (41-28)
Last night the Red Sox beat the Dodgers in a high-scoring 10-6 victory. It was Felix Doubront's major league debut, he was not spectacular but he got the job done, throwing 5 innings and allowing 3 earned runs. He is now 1-0/5.40/2 after his first start. David Ortiz (right) had a 2-run home run and is now .268/15/45 as he is really heating up after that tough April. J.D. Drew (.276/8/37) had a solo home run and Adrian Beltre (.339/10/48) had another 2-run shot. Dustin Pedroia continued his hot streak, going 2-3 with an RBI last night. The best thing about last night is that, yet again, the Rays and Yankees lost, and now the Red Sox are only 1 game back! Tonight, Tim Wakefield (2-5/5.42/38) and Vicente Padilla (1-1/6.65/23) take the hill. I hope the Sox can pitch a little better than they did last night, and hit the same way!
