Red Sox Wrap Up Homestand With Win

Red Sox - 8
White Sox - 5

W: Wakefield (11-9)
L: Garland (7-7)
S: Papelbon (22)

The Red Sox dominated the White Sox today for the most part. It was 8 to 1 until Manny Delcarmen came in and pitched pretty poorly. But the Red Sox held on until the end. Manny Ramirez and Mike Lowell both had 3-run home runs. The offense was good today, whenever you have 8 runs you give yourself a great chance to win. Wakefield pitched good too, which helped. Papelbon came in in the 9th and worked his way out of a bases loaded jam with a strikeout and getting Konerko to ground out into a double play. This was the Red Sox 3rd victory in a row against the White Sox and they finished the series taking three out of four.

Box Score

The Yankees beat Tampa Bay 21 to 4.............Wow. AL East lead remains "a safe distance" away at 7.5 games.
