In the first five games since the All-Star break, it's as though a switch has been flipped for the Red Sox offense.
When the offense explodes for 14 runs on 18 hits it's easy to overlook the pitcher. But John Lackey did his job, too.
1yFelix Doubront didn't have the stuff the Red Sox were hoping for on Monday, giving up six runs in five-plus innings. That performance was more than enough to earn the Sox a loss.
1yJarrod Saltalamacchia looked lost at the plate for about a month, striking out at an alarming rate. But over the last few games it looks as if he's got the timing back down.
1yThe Red Sox strike first, but they fail to strike again, losing to the Rangers, 9-1. It certainly isn't the way they wanted to start off the road trip.
1yDaisuke Matsuzaka, Andrew Bailey, and Scott Atchison are all closer to returning to the Sox.
1yAdrian Gonzalez dealt with a massive slump for most of the season, but didn't get too down on himself. He won't get ahead of himself either after a nice week at the plate.
1yJon Lester's struggles are well-documented, and with an upcoming start against a Yankees this weekend, and an off-day on Thursday, Bobby Valentine is left with the decision to skip his start or not.
1yThe New York Yankees send two minor leaguers to the Seattle Mariners for outfielder Ichiro Suzuki and cash.
