Buchholz, Beltre and Boston...WOW!

The Boston Red Sox completed their three game sweep of the Seattle Mariners with a well-deserved 5-1 win. Clay Buchholz was sharp for seven innings (his curve was table-droppingly unbelievable) and Adrian Beltre launched a home run that seemingly touched the sky with his unique "one knee on the ground" power swing. Click on this post's title and take a look at it on the Red Sox home page. Check out some of Clay's offerings, too. Victor Martinez made two great throws from behind the plate and banged a two run double to help the cause. Here's Clay...

"You got two great players, one behind the plate and one playing third base. When they're on the same page and they can make things happen like that, all that does for a team is bring them up and want to get in the dugout and makes everyone want to get a hit."

All three of 'em put on quite a show. Boston is now six games (loss column) behind the Yankees and they play the pinstripers six more times. Can miracles happen? NY is a really tough team to beat six straight times but ya never know. You just never know. The action returns to Fenway Park with three games against Toronto starting tonight. AL East action. Here are all the details...

Fri. 17 Tor 7:10 PM ET RSN/NESN** Lackey (12-10) vs. Cecil (12-7)
Sat. 18 Tor 7:10 PM ET RSN/NESN** Beckett (5-4) vs. Romero (12-9)
Sun. 19 Tor 1:35 PM ET RSN/NESN** Lester (17-8) vs. Marcum (12-7)

The Orioles follow the Jays into town and every game left in the remaining half-month of the 2010 season is absolutely vital. There are no two ways to look at it. None at all. Thanks for stopping in and please don't forget to click on this post's title for all the details of the game, video included. I'll see you soon. Count on it. As always, BE WELL.
