Weekly News

This week went pretty much the opposite as it should have as the Red Sox won a series against the contending Detroit Tigers before dropping one to the fourth place Minnesota Twins in a 3-4 week. For the first time this season, the Player of the Week is Carl Crawford. Crawford appears to have finally righted himself at the plate, as he went .345/2/8 this week and is now .279/3/10 this season. In the pitching department, Clay Buchholz takes the lead with his sixth Pitcher of the Week after going 1-0/1.20/7 in two starts against the Tigers and Twins. Buchholz has finally overcome his rough start to take the team lead in ERA as the righty is now 9-3/4.48/80 this season. The Performance of the Week goes to Carl Crawford's Friday game against the Twins that saw him go 3-5 with two runs and three RBIs, including a home run. The Game of the Week goes to Monday's 7-3 win over the Tigers. In the upcoming week, the Red Sox will play three in Fenway against the Rangers before playing four in Cleveland.
