Red Sox Take Out the Brooms To Beat Mariners (62-37)

Well, I decided that I have nothing better to do than make a blog post, so you'll be getting today's report of the Red Sox' 12-8 win. The Mariners took a 2-0 lead in the 1st on a Miguel Olivo 2-run homer over the monster. However, in the bottom of the 1st, an Adrian Gonzalez single made it 2-1 before a 2-run homer by Kevin Youkilis made it 3-2 Red Sox. Later in the inning, a 2-run homer by Jarrod Saltalamacchia made it 5-2. In the 5th, an RBI double by Brendan Ryan made it 5-3. However, in the bottom half, 6 straight batters for the Red Sox reached base (Gonzalez, Youkilis, Ortiz, Crawford, Reddick, and Saltalamacchia) and once the dust settled the Red Sox were ahead 10-3. In the 6th, an RBI single by Adrian Gonzalez made it 11-3. However, in the 7th, the Mariners got right back into the game on a grand slam by Brendan Ryan to make it 11-7. In the bottom of the 7th, Josh Reddick scoredon a bloop single by Jacoby Ellsbury to make it 12-7. In the 9th, an RBI double by Dustin Ackley made it 12-8.
Tim Wakefield was actually pretty good for most of the game, but after the grand slam he would up with 7 earned runs in 6 1/3 innings, and is now 6-3/5.15/47. Alfredo Aceves allowed 1 run in 2 2/3 innings of relief, as he has been so valuable out of the bullpen. Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-5 with a run and an RBI in a good day. Dustin Pedroia pushed his hit streak to 20 games in a 1-5 day where h
e scored a run. Adrian Gonzalez had a great day, going 3-5 with 2 runs and 2 RBIs, as he is now .346/17/82. Kevin Youkilis went 1-3 with 2 runs and a 2-run homer in a good day, as he is now .282/14/72. David Ortiz went 2-5 with 2 runs. Carl Crawford also played a good game, going 3-4 with 2 runs and 2 RBIs, as he is now .254/6/33. Josh Reddick continued to impress by going 2-5 with 2 runs and 1 RBI, as he is now .358/4/19. Jarrod Saltalamacchia (left) had a great game, going 3-4 with 4 RBIs, as he is now .259/8/31. Tomorrow night, Jon Lester (10-4/3.31/110) will return from the DL against Kyle Davies (1-9/7.32/44) and the Royals.
