The Offense Powers Red Sox To Victory...Boston 10 Rays 6

Boston's bats boomed and ten Red Sox runners safely crossed the plate as Boston finally beat Tampa Bay in Florida by a score of 10-6. By the fourth inning the score was 6-2 good guys but Tampa crept to within a run by scoring three in the fifth. Boston put it away with four more runs in the sixth and the seventh. Tim Wakefield got the victory although he was off his game. Here's what he had to say...

“The offense won the game tonight. I was lucky enough to get through five, I walked the first guy in the sixth and I was out of the game - the bullpen really picked me up,” said Wakefield. “It’s nice to not pitch so well and get the win, and I’m just glad we scored some runs and gained some momentum going back to our side.”

Timmy ended up going five innings and giving up five runs on seven hits. Okajima held the Rays at bay in the sixth and the seventh and Ramirez and Saito nailed down the victory with an inning apiece. As for the offense, shortstop Nick Green led the team with three hits and Pedey Pedroia and Mike Lowell contributed two hits apiece. Kevin Youkilis led the team with three RBIs. Only the forever slumping Big Papi David Ortiz went hitless, fueling the doubts surrounding his batting prowess. I hope he can break out of this funk...soon. Today would be nice. Speaking of today, Brad Penny (Oi Vei) will try to tie this four game series against the Rays, going against James Shields. To tell you the truth, a series tie would almost be like a Boston victory given the way Boston plays at that darn Trop. The game starts at 1:38pm EDT and will be televised on NESN and NESN HD and heard on the usual radio outlets.

Enjoy your Sunday, be safe and as always, BE WELL. You can click on the title of this post to be magically transported to the Boston Globe's Red Sox homepage. Your comments are always welcome and always answered. See ya...soon. Thanks for being here. I mean that.
