Red Sox 4, Blue Jays 1. The Sox hit three solo home runs, including David Ortiz’s 5th of the season. Tim Wakefield, who currently has the third longest tenure with one team (behind John Smoltz and Trevor Hoffman), pitched 7 innings and only gave up 4 hits.
NOTE FROM AROUND THE AL EAST…
- Looks like we are back to turning our monitor upside-down for a while to see the Rays in first place.
- Chase Wright has “earned” a second start against the Red Sox and Diasuke Matsuzaka on national television Sunday Night.
- The Orioles activated Corey Patterson from bereavement leave.
- John Lester, recovering from cancer, will have at least one start in AAA before returning to the Red Sox.
- The Blue Jays had an Aura? Maybe back in 1993.
