Last night the Red Sox beat the Dodgers 2-0 completing their second straight sweep in a 6-0 week for them. David Ortiz (right) won his team-leading 4th PLayer of the Week with 3 home runs and 7 RBIs. Ortiz is having a good year at .260/15/46. The best thing about this week is that the Rays and Yankees had tough weeks, the Red Sox started the week in 3rd place, 4 games back and are now tied with the Rays for second place and are only 1 game back. The Sox have a 6 game win streak and have won 8 of their last 9 as they ultimately have been fantastic recently. Next week, the Red Sox travel to Denver to take on the Rockies from Tuesday to Thursday, then they go to San Francisco. In case you haven't noticed, this will be the first time the Red Sox have played a game on the west coast all year. I hope the Sox can continue the momentum and get into first place!
