Four more home runs for the Sox tonight, and the mighty Rangers get nothing off Andrew Miller, and the Sox take three of four off Texas, 6-0. The Red Sox outscored them 30-7 in the three wins.
Doesn't it seem like a few years ago that the Sox were swept by Texas to begin the season?
David Ortiz, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and Adrian Gonzalez (twice) banged out homers, and Gonzo has hit five in ten at-bats over the past three games. What was that about the "Home Run Derby Jinx" again?
It was Andrew Miller's best start in a Red Sox uniform: 6 1/3 innings, three hits allowed and six strikeouts. He's now 6-1.
The Sox have now won 6 of 8 since they were shut down by Tampa Bay last week.
Screw New York and their three grand slams today. The Red Sox continue to lead by one game.
And Tim Wakefield goes for number 200 for the sixth time on Friday night, against that very same A's team that gave up 22 runs today. (But thanks for taking two of three, guys.)
