The Red Sox put up five doubles last night against the Orioles, including three from Mike Lowell. Remember when we saw Mike Lowell as just a salary dump?
Solid start from Schilling for win #5, scattering 8 hits and 0 walks over 7 innings. Timlin got his 7th Hold with a scoreless 8th inning, and Papelbon got save #12 with a perfect 9th.
The Man of the Game is without question Mike Lowell who did it all. He went 3 for 4 with 3 doubles. He scored twice, stole a base, and made an AMAZING play that baffled Jerry Remy and everyone at Fenway. To quote Remy "Boy is he playing some baseball."
