Red Sox Homer Enough to Beat Jays (65-49)
Last night the Red Sox beat the Blue Jays 7-5 to a very suspenseful game. Daisuke Matsuzaka was not too sharp, allowing 4 runs in 5.2 innings with 7 strikeouts, he is now 8-3/4.09/87 as he is actually having a pretty decent season despite starting with an injury. J.D. Drew hit a solo home run in the 5th to give the Sox the 5-4 lead, he is now .259/13/53 as he is having his worst year in a Boston uniform. Mike Lowell (right) also hit a home run, in the 8th that gave the Sox the lead, he is now .219/4/18. Tonight, Clay Buchholz (12-5/2.66/82) and Shaun Marcum (10-5/3.44/112) as this could be a pitching game. The Yankees lost, so the Sox moved up to 5 games back.
