Another day, another Red Sox victory.

The team with the best record in the American League proved it could dispatch National League squads with ease as well, sweeping the Padres this week in a three-game series at Fenway.

While the Padres aren't exactly the class of the NL--they now sit six games below .500 and in fourth in the NL West--the Sox continue to surprise after what can only be described as a disaster of a 2012 season.

Boston wrapped up the three-game stand with an 8-2 win, their 53rd of the season, against the Padres and manager John Farrell expressed his pleasure at the result.

"The fact is, today, we were able to bunch 17 or 18 hits together," Farrell said. "[It was] a very good offensive approach and a consistent one."

The offense wasn't the only key, as Allen Webster recorded his first career win in the big leagues with a solid 6-inning, 2-run outing.

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia was impressed with the young righty's performance, along with the team's pitching as a whole.

"Webster threw the ball good, he attacked the zone, he's got great stuff," Pedroia said. "It's good to continue to swing the bats well and score runs for out staff because they've been throwing the ball great."

In a two-week stretch that has seen massive amounts of shake-up with the Patriots, Celtics and Bruins, the Sox continue to cruise along in first place.
