One thing's for sure, the Red Sox, and Player of the Week Jed Lowrie (right) have both been hot of late. After a 7-0 win today, the Red Sox finished their 6-1 week to put them at 10-11 this season. Jed Lowrie had 2 home runs and 7 RBIs this week, to make him .431/3/12 on the season, as he's been very good. Kevin Youkilis made a close runner-up with 3 home runs and 6 RBIs, as he is now .222/4/11 this year. The pitcher of the week was Daisuke Matsuzaka, as he had two great outings, and over the course of the week he had 2 wins, and threw 15 shutout innings! The Performance of the week went to Jed Lowrie on Monday (4/18/11) against the Blue Jays, as he went 4-5 with a home run and 4 RBIs. The game of the week goes to last night's 5-0 victory against the Angels as Daisuke Matsuzaka threw 8 shutout innings and allowed only one hit. This next week, the Red Sox, after an off day tomorrow, the Sox will face the Orioles in Baltimore and head back to Fenway to face the Mariners the next 3 days. I am glad that the Sox had such a great week, and they are back in the saddle again!
