Red Sox Take the Lead

by @ 6:13 am. Filed under 2011 Red Sox

The Red Sox took a one game lead in the AL East after back to back wins and then back to back losses by the Yankees.  Of couse at this point it looks like the two teams are playing more for home field and seeding but still.  It was also the second straight game that they’ve pasted the Rangers.

They scored 13 yesterday.  Carl Crawford drove in five runs and Jacoby Ellsbury scored three times in the blowout.  Ellsbury, Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez all went yard in the win.

Josh Beckett picked up with the win with another nice start.  He gave up a run on four hits with two walks and four strikeouts in six innings.  The win improved his record to 11-5 on the season.

Andrew Miller gets the start tonight.  Alexi Ogando throws for the Rangers so this is going to be a tough one.  You wonder how much MLB playoff tickets will go for if this is the series in the first round.
