Weekly News

Of the many things that have changed over the years on Sox.Rox-- the Weekly News will still remain, just as it has since 2009. The Sox suffered a rough week to open the season, getting swept by the Tigers in an 0-3 week. However, one player who stayed tough throughout the week was David Ortiz (right)-- who had a good series-- batting .417/0/2 and barely edging Adrian Gonzalez (.385/1/2). The pitcher of the week is Jon Lester (left)-- who had a very nice performance on Opening Day. He went seven strong innings against the Tigers and allowed just one run in a no decision. The performance of the day goes to Mike Aviles in today's 13-12 loss to Detroit. Aviles had some timely hits and went 3-5 with 3 RBIs and 2 runs scored in a good game. Finally, the game of the week was today's game. Even though it was a heartbreaker with the bullpen blowing leads twice, it was quite a game and it was nice to see the Red Sox' bats get to work. In the coming week, the Red Sox will play a three game series in Toronto (expect a series preview tomorrow) before an off day on Thursday. After that off day, they will head to Boston to face the Rays in a week riddled with AL East opponents.
