Red Sox Avoid Sweep (84-68)
Last night the Red Sox beat the Orioles 6-1 to avoid a sweep from the worst team in baseball, as they've been pretty bad lately. John Lackey was stingy, allowing 1 run in 7 innings, he is now 13-11/4.51/141. David Ortiz (right) had a great game, he went 2-3 with 4 RBIs, including a 3-run homer, he is now .261/31/96. Josh Reddick and Adrian Beltre both also had 1 RBI, Reddick's by way of the home run. On Friday, the Sox travel to New York to attack the Yankees, as this will be a key series. Josh Beckett (5-5/5.71/106) and Andy Pettite (11-2/2.81/92) will take the hill. If the Sox sweep the Yankees it will at least give them a chance.
