The Red Sox Put On Their Hitting Shoes...

Saturday afternoon, the Boston Red Sox defeated the Cincinnati Reds by a score of 16-6. With 18 hits, two by the newly returned Julio Lugo, everything was good. Here is a quick recap from mlb dot com...

"Julio Lugo had two hits after sitting out the previous 12 days with a back injury, and the Boston Red Sox hit three homers in a 16-6 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday.
Lugo led off the first inning with a double and scored on Mike Lowell’s single. He singled in a seven-run fourth, chasing starter Homer Bailey from the game. With the injury behind him, the shortstop is virtually certain to accompany the Red Sox on Wednesday to Tokyo, where they play two exhibition games against Japanese teams before the first two games of the regular season against the Oakland Athletics.
“Right now I’m going. I went once and I like it. I like it very much,” said Lugo..."

Peter here, and we like it too, Julio. John Lester was good, not great, and Hansack continues to impress. Here is the entire Sox pitching summary for the game...

IP H R ER BB SO HR
J Lester 4 4 3 3 1 3 0
B Corey 1 2-3 3 0 0 0 1 0
D Aardsma 1 2 2 2 1 1 1
J Lopez 1 1-3 2 1 1 0 1 0
D Hansack 1 0 0 0 0 2 0

So the hitting shoes were on, the pitching was adequate, Josh Beckett is feeling better each and every day, and Daisuke WILL be with the team for the trip to the Far East. Sunday's looking up, isn't it?

Well, that's it from here now. And as always, thank you for stopping in to spend a few minutes with me. Click on the title for the entire mlb dot com recap of yesterday's triumph. Have a great Sunday!
