After last night's 5-1 win against the Cubs, the Red Sox finished the week with a 5-1 record to make them 25-21 on the season. For the first time this year, our Player of the week is Kevin Youkilis, who went .500/1/7 this week, he batted .500!!!! This week the Red Sox took one from the Orioles, took two from the Tigers, and won a series 2-1 against the Cubs. Next week, we will head to Cleveland for 3 games, then go to Detroit for 4 games. Our Pitcher of the Week is Clay Buchholz, who threw 7 shutout innings Wednesday (5/17/11) in a rainy day against the Tigers. Our Game of the Week would have to go to Monday (5/15/11) against the Orioles, as the Red Sox came back from a 6-run deficit, and terrible start by Daisuke, to win 8-7 on a walk-off double by Adrian Gonzalez. The performance of the week goes to Adrian Gonzalez on Friday (5/19/11), as he went 4-6, scoring a run, and driving in 4 runs. I am happy that the Sox had such a good week, and now sit just .5 games out of 1st place.
