Game thoughts

J.D. Drew started it off by stroking a single to right and it was down hill from there as Youkilis made the first out of the inning by driving in Ortiz on a fielders choice. Biggest at bat of the inning was the ten pitch effort by Dustin Pedroia that led to a walk. Wierdest play was Coco being thrown out at third after rounding the bag to far that ended the inning.

3-4-5 hitters - 5 of 11 with six RBI (Youkilis had 2 walks).

Lugo crawls above the Mendoza line by going 2 for 4.

Really this was a hum drum type of game after the first inning. The only excitement came in the sixth when Stairs and Rios hit back to back home runs to lead off the inning, but Ortiz and Ramirez pushed the lead back to three runs in the bottom of the inning. Both runs scored with two outs in the inning.

Delcarmen looks like he has cemented his position in the pen. Another 1-2-3 inning from him on 12 pitches (9 for strikes).

Another batter with 500 + home runs goes down by the K from Okijima. Everybody drink!
