Red Sox Successfully Pull Off Sweep (40-28)
Last night, the Red Sox beat the Diamondbacks 8-5, thus sweeping the Diamondbacks. The best thing was that the Rays and Yankees both lost, putting the Red Sox only 2 games back at 40-28! Marco Scutaro (right) had a great game, nabbing 3 RBIs and a double in a 2-4 night. David Ortiz had a 2-run homer, he is now .266/14/43 as he is on a roll, that was his second homer of the series. Kevin Youkilis, Adrian Beltre, and Daniel Nava all had 1 RBI. John Lackey had a solid game, allowing 3 earned runs over 6 innings, he is now 8-3/4.53/49 as he has not been spectacular but he has gotten the job done this year. Tonight, the Red Sox play the Dodgers and Felix Doubront (0-0/0.00/0) and Carlos Monasterios (3-1/2.98/19). Let's prove that we're better without Manny!
