After wrapping up a three game sweep of the New York Yankees last night, the Red Sox concluded a 4-2 week. This week included a win against the Twins, two losses against the Blue Jays, and three wins against the Yankees. Our Player of the Week is Adrian Gonzalez, who is now this year's leader with three consecutive. Gonzo batted .346 with 5 home runs and 10 RBIs this week to raise him to .319/9/34 on the season. Gonzalez also hit home runs in 4 straight ballgames, a streak that ended yesterday. Our Pitcher of the Week is Josh Beckett who pitched 7 shutout innings against Minnesota and 6 shutout against the Yankees, for a great week, as he is now a fantastic 3-1/1.75/49. Our game of the week goes to last night (5/15/11), as the Sox came back from an early deficit to beat the Yankees 7-5. The performance of the week is Tuesday (5/10/11) against the Blue Jays by Adrian Gonzalez, who went 3-6 with 2 home runs and 3 RBIs. In the upcoming week, the Sox will play two against the Orioles at home, two against the Tigers, and three against the Cubs in their first trip to Fenway since 1918.
