After today's 9-5 win over the Twins, the Red Sox concluded this week at 4-3, and 16-18 on the season. Our Player of the Week, for the second week in a row, is Adrian Gonzalez, who batted at .333 with 3 home runs and 9 RBIs, he is now .314/4/24 this season, as I've been very impressed. The Red Sox tied 2-2 in a 4 game series against the Angels, and are currently ahead 2-1 in a 4 game series against the Twins, the final game of the series being tomorrow. Next week, they will play the Twins tomorrow, then head to Toronto for 3 games, and head to New York for 3 games. The pitcher of the week goes to Clay Buchholz, who allowed 2 runs over 11 2/3 innings, and is now 3-3/4.19/23. The game of the week was Monday night's game against the Angels, where the Red Sox battled against undefeated Jered Weaver to win 9-5. The performance of the week was Adrian Gonzalez today, as he went 3-5 with 2 RBIs, 2 runs, and a home run. I am excited for the upcoming week, as the Sox will look, once again, to break the .500 mark.
