Weekly News

Despite today's miserable game against the Blue Jays, the Red Sox rattled off a fine 5-2 mark on the week-- going 3-1 against Detroit and 2-1 against Toronto. For his team-leading fourth time this year, the Player of the Week is the ever-impressive David Ortiz. Ortiz batted .384/3/7 this week and has continued to dominate the opposition, adding to his great .315/13/37 season here in 2012. For his first time of the year, the Pitcher of the Week is Clay Buchholz who appears to be turning it around. He allowed two runs in eight strong against Toronto on Friday, but his season stats are still brutal at 5-2/6.58/40. The Performance of the Week goes to the youngster Daniel Nava-- who made his mark with a 4-5, three runs scored, three doubles night against the Blue Jays in Friday's 7-2 win. The Game of the Week will be Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Tigers. The game was tied late but an Adrian Gonzalez RBI double and Kevin Youkilis home run would allow the Red Sox to win. In the upcoming week, the Red Sox have an off day tomorrow before going home for three game series against the Orioles and Nationals.
