Momentum Going Back to Boston

Lots and lots to like from last night's sweep in Toronto.

Jon Lester threw eight solid innings, allowing just a run and three hits, after loading the bases and allowing the run in the first.

J.D. Drew banged out two home runs and Victor Martinez hit a rocket out of the SkyDome (I will always call Toronto's home that) and the Red Sox coasted to an 8-1 demolition of the Blue Jays.

The last two games by Lester and Clay Buchholz really spared the pen and gave them a good rest going into this important series with the Yankees.

The Sox scored 25 runs in the sweep over a falling Blue Jays team, but it was good to see the bats rocketting at just the right time.

Texas won at home last night, so the Red Sox Wild Card lead remains at one game.

Brad Penny, Junichi Tazawa and Josh Beckett will pitch this weekend's series against New York. Yours Truly will be in attendance on Saturday, along many other members of Red Sox Nation-New York to root on our boys against The Evil Empire. We will be sitting in section 3 in right field in the back five rows (there will be 100 of us). So if you're at the game, stop by and say hello.
