Boston Red Sox Sweep NY Yankees With A 7-5 Win...Finally .500

Grinder. That was exactly what Sunday Boston Red Sox starter Jon Lester called his outing. He battled the whole time. Here, read his words...

“As a starting pitcher, when you can go out there and not have your best stuff and still come out on top, that’s always a good thing. These are the games that you remember at the end of the year when you look back on things. The two-hit shutouts that you throw when you can basically throw your glove out there, those are the special nights that don’t come along very often. When it’s all said and done, these grinders are the more important ones.’’

Big Papi David Ortiz continued his torrid hitting with three hits, including a tater. With Papi, Youk, who also homered, and Gonzalez, not to mention Jeddy Lowrie, going strong (where are you, Pedey?), just a few more things must fall into place. Ya know what...they will. I wrote in an earlier post that once this complicated but lovable team gets to .500, the sky's the limit. Take us higher, Boston. Right now I have Sly and the Family Stone's I WANNA TAKE YOU HIGHER in my mind, the Woodstock version. Believe me, that's not a bad thing. Not at all. I'll leave you with the pitching match ups for the next two games with the Birdies...
