Red Sox win!

Red Sox - 10
White Sox - 3

W: Beckett (13-3) L: Contreras (5-12)

The Red Sox evened up their 4-game series with Chicago Friday, with an exciting 10 to 3 victory. Hmm so where should I start? Terry Francono managed to get ejected in the 1st inning arguing the umpire screwing JD Drew of a home run. David Ortiz left the game with a left shoulder strain. Josh Beckett struck out a season-high 10 batters. Julio Lugo hit a grand slam. Coco Crisp had a bases clearing triple and a clutch outfield assist to end the 6th inning. And the Sox bullpen once again got the job done. I have to say, after staying quiet for a few weeks this offense kind of exploded out of nowhere. It's great to see that they aren't completely sucking. Hopefully this can spark some sort of awesome play for the rest of the season. Beckett was great, the offense was absolutely fantastic and besides Big Papi leaving the game with an injury there really was nothing bad to say about this game.
In other baseball news, the Yankees lost 14-4 to the Devil Rays so the Sox lead is back up to 8 games and Barry Bonds didn't hit a home run, staying par at 753. He finished the game 0-4 with a walk and a strikeout.
