After last night's win over the Yankees, the Red Sox wound up at 2-4 on the week, and 2-7 on the season after another disappointing week with a sweep by the Cleveland Indians and a series win over the Yankees. Our Player of the Week in, you guessed it, Dustin Pedroia (right), in a week where he hit .458/1/5 including having 3 hits in the past three games. This season, he is hitting at a .400 clip along with a homer and 5 RBIs. The pitcher of the week this week is Jon Lester, who threw 7 shutout innings, striking out 9 in his one start against the Cleveland Indians. Performance of the Week was Dustin Pedroia in the series opener against the Yankees (4/8/11). The game of the week was also April 8th, against the Yankees as they won their first game of the year against the Yankees in a roller coaster 9-6 win. I'm very happy that the Sox beat the Yanks, and I hope they can do the same against the Rays.
