Red Sox End Losing Streak In A Big Way! (86-61)
Well, it finally happened, Tim Wakefield got win #200. He didn't pitch too well, but he got the job done, allowing 5 runs in 6 innings, as he is now 7-6/5.13/84. He was relieved with Alfredo Aceves' 2 scoreless innings, and a run in an inning by Junichi Tazawa in his first appearance since Tommy John surgery. Jacoby Ellsbury had a great game, going 4-5 with 4 runs and 3 RBIs, including a solo home run, as he is now .321/27/94. Dustin Pedroia (left), somehow, had an even better game, going 4-5 with 4 runs and 5 RBIs, including 2 home runs, as he is having a great season at .300/20/82, as he has finally achieved his goal of 20 home runs in a season. Adrian Gonzalez had a good game, going 2-4 with a run and an RBI. Carl Crawford had a good game, going 2-4 with 3 runs scored, raising his average up to .253, as he's been fantastic all year... no, no he has not. Marco Scutaro had a good day as well, going 2-3 with a run and 2 RBIs. Jarrod Saltalamacchia was another 4-RBI man, going 2-5 with 4 RBIs, as he is now .249/16/55. Today, at 1:35, we will face a bit of a lopsided matchup as John Lackey (12-12/6.30/97) will face Blue Jays ace Ricky Romero (14-10/3.01/164).
