I got home late from a party last night, so I've decided not to make the game post and just do the Weekly News. However, the Sox won 6-1 as Darnell McDonald and Carl Crawford hit homers and Jon Lester was quite good. The Sox had a very good week though, going 4-3, losing 1-2 against the Rays and winning 3-1 against the Royals. Our Player of the Week, Jacoby Ellsbury moves into a tie with Adrian Gonzalez for the lead in Player of the Weeks with 5 awards. This week, Ellsbury batted .294/2/5 despite missing two games. The Pitcher of the Week is Jon Lester, who went 2-0/1.38/11 in a good week, he is now 13-6/3.16/146. Our Performance of the Week when on Thursday (8/18/11), Dustin Pedroia went 3-4 with 3 RBIs as he saved a game for us. The Game of the Week was Friday (8/19/11), as in all honesty it was good to see us just crush the Royals 7-1 after the Rays series. Next week, we will play a 4-game series in Texas against the Rangers, then play a 3-game series at home against the A's.
