Weekly News

The Red Sox are getting hot-- coming off a 4-2 week, they raised it one with a 5-1 week involving a sweep of the Marlins and series win against the Braves. The Player of the Week, for his second time this season, is rookie Will Middlebrooks. Middlebrooks had a ridiculously good week by batting .625/5/10 and raising his very impressive season stats to .326/9/34 as he should be in the running for AL Rookie of the Year come November. For his tied team leading third time this season, the Pitcher of the Week is Jon Lester. Despite receiving the loss on Friday's 4-1 loss to Atlanta, Lester pitched well by allowing three runs over seven innings. The lefty is now 4-5/4.48/75 in a down year here in 2012. The Performance of the Week belongs to Cody Ross in today's 9-4 win over the Braves. Ross went 2-4 with a pair of home runs and 5 RBIs in leading the Red Sox to a win. Finally, the Game of the Week was Thursday's 6-5 win over the Marlins as the Red Sox put together a three run eighth to edge out the sweep over Miami. In the upcoming week, the Red Sox will play a three game series against the Blue Jays in Fenway before going on the road for four games against Seattle.
