Beltre & Papi Garner 100 RBIs as Boston Red Sox Thrash Chicago White Sox 6-1

Big Papi David Ortiz has made an unbelievable comeback from his horrid April and first part of May. Adrian Beltre has been smashing the round ball all year long and has proved invaluable at the plate and in the field (sign him to a multi-year deal, Theo). They both reached the 100 RBI milestone last night in their 7-5 victory over the Pale Hose. It was Big Papi David Ortiz' first 100 RBI season since 2007. Well done, Papi. Here he is...

“Everybody makes a big deal about 100. Nobody makes a big deal about 99. So I guess you’ve got to look forward to the 100 mark. Personally, I don’t think there’s any difference. I guess that one RBI makes a huge difference because everybody was just like focusing on the first two months that I had last year. But 99, 100, to me it’s no difference. It’s just one number different.’’

Adrian Beltre FINALLY reached the same mark last night. He said this after game's end...

“I was just waiting for Big Papi to get his, so I can follow him.

Clay Buchholz continued (with one recent exception) his brilliant pitching, going eight strong and allowing one run on five hits while walking one and whiffing five. He's amazing. The NY Yankees and AJ Burnett were pounded flat and lost to the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of 7-5. The Sox are hanging by a thread but they're still hanging...and NOT from a noose. I'm sure they want the Yankees to win and clinch it rather than handing it to them with a Boston loss. You know what? They'll do it, too.

All the eyes of Red Sox Nation are anxiously awaiting Jon Lester's big game. When (when, not if) he wins, it would be his 20th victory. More on that in a later post. And tonight, it'll be Lackey (13-11) vs. Jackson (3-8) at 8:10pm EDT. Deep dish pizza, anyone? I'm a thin pizza guy, anyways. New York/New Haven style. There is NO better. Take that Chicago. Wham. Bam.

I hope your Tuesday will be a great one, click on this post's title for more on the Sox and as always, BE WELL. Thank you for stopping in. GO SOX.
