SOX DESERVE SOME ATTENTION TOO
On a night when the Celtics and Bruins each register huge playoff victories, it's hard for any Red Sox team to get some attention, especially a 4th placed Red Sox team. But score 17 runs and that convention is no longer applicable.
Youkilis, Hall, Beltre, and Pedroia each had homers. Lowell had 4 RBI, Beltre, Pedroia, and Beltre each had 3. Lowell had 3 doubles.
Buchholz was far from amazing, but he was good enough to pick up his 3rd win of the season. Schoenenweis allowed 4 runs in the 9th to make the game seem closer than it was.
This was a good start to a vital homestand. If the Sox continue to sputter, they're facing elimination by June. This was certainly an offensive abberation, but nights like last night can get guys like Drew, Martinez, and Lowell going.
Lester vs. Ervin Santana tonight.
