Red Sox Rout Rays, Take Series (78-62)
Last night the Red Sox took a series with some very similar games, winning 11-5. The first game of the series was 12-5, the second was 14-5, and at last, last night's 11-5. Marco Scutaro (right) had a great game, going 4-5, and having two home runs and 3 RBIs, he is now .275/10/52 as he has been good this year. Victor Martinez (.294/15/63) and Adrian Beltre (.323/27/95) were nearly identical, both going 2-4 with a home run and 2 RBIs. Josh Reddick had 3 hits and Lars Anderson hit his first MLB hit as the rookies chipped in. Tim Wakefield was not spectacular, allowing 4 earned runs in 5 innings, but he got the win, and is now 4-10/5.26/77. Tonight, the Red Sox travel to Oakland, and Clay Buchholz (15-6/2.25/103) and Trevor Cahill (15-6/2.72/94) as two pitchers with very similar numbers will pitch. I hope the Sox can take or sweep a series in Oakland.
