Nava's Historic Debut Leads Sox to Win (37-27)

Yesterday the Red Sox pounded the Phillies for the second straight time, beating them 10-2. Daniel Nava (right) played in his first major league game today and the first pitch he saw in his major league career, he turned around for a grand slam! That is the way to begin your career! Daisuke Matsuzaka was supposed to start but he was scratched with tightness in his right forearm, he was forced on the 15-day DL. The Red Sox have really been hit hard by injuries but are still 37-27 and 4 games behind the Rays. Instead of Matsuzaka, Scott Atchison started instead and allowed 2 runs in 3 innings, he is now 0-1/4.76/12. Today, Tim Wakefield (2-4/5.48/35) and Cole Hamels (5-5/3.98/70) start at 1:35. The Sox have been pounding the Phillies so far, let's keep up the good work!
