Huge win for the Red Sox last night in a game that I would have put my life savings they were going to lose. Buchholz was getting hitters out and he actually showed signs of life for once on the mound this season. The Red Sox went with an unconventional lineup last night in order to prepare against the lefty pitching that they have been so bad against. Josh Rutledge has actually looked pretty decent at the plate so far he came into last nights game 4 for 10 and continued to produce good at bats. Big Papi was once again the story last night carrying the team to victory with his 3 RBI’s including a 2 run home run. The Red Sox have taken back first place in the AL East and I am really starting to feel the fever. If Clay Buchholz is winning games this team can be a real contender. Tonight the Sox look to win the series in Chicago with Henry Owens on the mound. Let’s hope the fastball pitcher has his command tonight and the Sox bats continue to show up. Here’s Papi’s homer from last night in case you missed it.
