Weekly News

This was a tough week for the Red Sox as they dropped a pair of series: one to the Orioles and one to their hated rivals, the Yankees. However, one bright spot was the work of Dustin Pedroia-- who batted .269/1/4 to boost his season up to .280/10/47 so far as he won his second Player of the Week. For the fourth time this year, the Pitcher of the Week is Jon Lester-- who looked the part of the ace he was supposed to be in allowing just a run over seven innings in New York yesterday. That strong outing improved him to 7-10, 5.03 so far in 2012. The Red Sox didn't have a huge week offensively so Monday's performance by Dustin Pedroia probably goes down as the Performance of the Week. In that game, he went 2-4-- reaching base three times on a walk, double, and single in a losing effort. Finally, the Game of the Week was yesterday's 4-1 affair over the Yankees as the Red Sox coasted to a relatively easy win in the Bronx. In the upcoming week, the Red Sox will take an off day tomorrow before welcoming the Angels and Royals to town for three each.
