Wow, This is Like Little League, With a Good PItcher! (28-22)

Wow, the Red Sox have scored 14 runs, twice in a row, off two different teams, as they beat the Tigers 14-1 today. The Red Sox got on top early in the 2nd inning on an RBI double by Drew Sutton. It got to be 2-0 on an RBI single by Josh Reddick, as the rookies were contributing. Later in the inning, Jacoby Ellsbury capped the rally with a 3-run homer deep to right field to make it 5-0. With 2 runners on in the 3rd inning, Carl Crawford knocked a 2-run triple off the wall in right center to make it 7-0. In the 4th, an RBI single by AlexAvila was the Tigers' only run of the game, making it 7-1. However, an error by Scott Sizemore on a hit by Adrian Gonzalez, and scoring Josh Reddick made it 8-1. Another RBI triple by Carl Crawford was hit in the 7th inning, and made it 9-1. However, in the 8th, an RBI double by Dustin Pedroia and an RBI single by Adrian Gonzalez pushed it to 11-1. Then another RBI double by Drew Sutton and a 2-run single by Josh Reddick made it 14-1, before the game was called due to rain.
Alfredo Aceves (top right) definitely pitched well today, allowing just a run on 5 hits in 6 innings, earning the win and making him 2-0/2.22/17, as he's been very good. Matt Albers followed him with a scoreless inning, and that was it for pitchers due to rain. Jacoby Ellsbury had a great day, going 1-3 with 2runs and that 3-run homer, as he is now .296/5/26. Dustin Pedroia went 1-5 with an RBI double and a run, and Adrian Gonzalez did the same, with an RBI single. David Ortiz went 2-3 and scored 3 runs, pushing the average to a great .309 mark. Carl Crawford went 4-5 with 2 runs and 3 RBIs, along with 2 triples, as he is now .244/3/19. Drew Sutton had a great game, going 2-5 with 2 runs and 2 RBIs, and Josh Reddick went 3-5 with 2 runs and 3 RBIs, as the rookies really did contribute. Tomorrow, the Sox will send Tim Wakefield (1-1/4.50/14) against Rick Porcello (4-2/3.08/30).
