Red Sox Enjoy Walk-Off Win (42-28)
Today the Sox beat the Dodgers in style with a 5-4 walk-off victory. Dustin Pedroia (right) applied the necessary heroics that scored Daniel Nava from 2nd base with 2 outs in the 9th inning. Pedroia is doing great lately, he is now .277/9/36 this year as he is having a fantastic homestand. Tim Wakefield allowed 3 earned runs in 6.1 innings and is now 2-5/4.33/44 as he has gotten a lot better as on May 7th his ERA stood at 6.23. Kevin Youkilis (.306/15/47) and Victor Martinez (.293/9/37) both hit home runs, they are both having good years. Jonathan Papelbon earned his 2nd win of the season today. Tomorrow night, Clay Buchholz (9-4/2.67/58) and Hiroki Kuroda (6-4/3.10/61) will start on ESPN. If the Sox win tomorrow night, they will have had a 6-0 week.
