Five Straight

The Red Sox lost their fifth straight game in amazingly embarrassing fashion last Saturday. It seemed it could not get any lower than that.

The Sox have not lost since.

They won their fifth straight since last Saturday, with another 10-3 thrashing of the White Sox in icebox conditions last night in ChiTown.

Daniel Bard went seven solid innings, allowed three runs, two earned.

It was a big night for Darnell McDonald, who hit a bases loaded double that untied the score at 3, and then hit a solo homer later in the game. He had two RBI heading into Friday's game, and tripled that total in two at-bats.

Cody Ross continues to impress at the plate, as the Rodeo Clown had two RBI singles.

The Red Sox have now scored 44 runs in this five-game winning streak, and lead the AL in total runs scored. A win tonight would get the Red Sox back to .500 at 10-10. Jon Lester takes the mound against Jake Peavy at the Cell this evening.

You can add your Red Sox photo to a cool Fenway Park 100th Anniversary Mosaic. I have three pictures in it: with the 2007 championship trophy, at Fenway on Opening Day this year and on the Brooklyn Bridge.
