Closing in on a sweep in Bird-land
Talk about a get-well weekend for the offense. John Smoltz and Clay Buchholz have both had starts they’d like to forget, but it appears as though the Sox will still give the Orioles the broom treatment.
The one night the offense didn’t cash in a lot, they didn’t need to, because Beckett was Beckett again.
Remember all that panic a week ago? It didn’t take long for the Red Sox to get their swagger back. Everything that Victor Martinez hits is hard. Mike Lowell continues to look great when rested. Youkilis and Ellsbury are more scorching than the Baltimore weather.
Six big games coming up, two at Tampa Bay and four in the Bronx. The Red Sox are going into it with a nice wave of momentum.
