After today's 3-2 walk-off win against the Mariners, the Red Sox avoided a sweep and closed out their week at 2-4, making them 12-15 on the season. They lost series 1-2 to both the Orioles and the Mariners, which is kind of sad. Our Player of the Week, for his first time, is Adrian Gonzalez, who batted .417 with 5 RBIs, as he is now .312/1/15 on the season. The pitcher of the week has to go to Jon Lester, who threw 8 innings, allowing 2 runs, and earning the win in Thursday's game against the Orioles. The game of the week goes to today's (5/1/11) 3-2 win over the Mariners, on a walk-off by Carl Crawford. The performance of the week goes to Jacoby Ellsbury in Thursday's win over the Orioles, as he went 3-5 with 2 runs and 2 RBI. In the upcoming week, the Red Sox will play a 4-game series at home against the Angels and 3 games of a 4 game series against the Twins. I hope that the Sox can have a good week and reach .500!
