Last night, the Red Sox lost 2-7 to the Yankees, concluding their week at 3-4. Our Player of the Week is Adrian Beltre (right) who had 3 home runs and 9 RBIs. He has won his 2nd Player of the Week, he is now .336/20/75. The Red Sox are now 63-49, 7 games behind the Yankees and 4.5 behind the Rays for a wild card. This week, Ryan Kalish hit his first career home run on Friday against the Yankees. A two-run shot into the bullpen. Mike Lowell also had a pretty good week, including a two -run homer over the green monster in his first pitch back from Pawtucket. Jon Lester (11-7/3.07/154) and Phil Hughes (13-4/3.96/107) will pitch today as the Sox conclude their series with the Yankees. I hope they can tie it up with a win.
