Lester Pitching And Papi Power Fuel Another Red Sox Win...Jim Ed Rice To Be Inducted Into Hall Of Fame TODAY

A crooked number, what do you know about that! On the strength of a Big Papi first inning home run and a powerful 7 1/3 innings from nine game winner Jon Lester, the Boston Red Sox made it two in a row over the hapless Baltimore Orioles. It sure was great to see that early three run shot. Here's the man himself...

“Our pitching’s been doing good, so we need to do some damage,’’ said David Ortiz, whose three-run, first-inning homer took the pressure to be perfect away from Lester. “That’s the only way, producing. We need to produce for our pitching. That’s the only way you’re going to win games. We’re dealing with New York playing good now. So we’ve got to bring it.’’

So Boston gains a game in the standings and is now only 1 1/2 games behind the NY Yankees. Considering the way the pinstripers have been playing since the All Star break, that ain't bad at all. But the big news today is the 1:30pm EDT Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. Our very own Jim Ed Rice will have his day in the sun and I'll be watching. Television coverage begins at 12:30pm EDT on the MLB channel, so you're going to need cable TV in order to see it. We receive the MLB channel on two different feeds, one standard and one high definition, so I'm all set. I hope you are, too.

Enjoy your Sunday, I know Jim Ed will. As always, be well. Don't forget to click on this post's title for the Boston Globe's Red Sox homepage which has complete coverage of last night's Sox game and today's baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, which will be moving and very rememorable. I can't wait. See ya...soon. Enjoy your Sunday. Your comments are always welcome.
