Here's your wakeup call -- a combination of newsworthy andor interesting tidbits -- for Monday, July 30.
The Red Sox pulled off a 3-2 win New York Sunday night, but Bobby Valentine wasn't on the field to celebrate. He was ejected after arguing about a missed hit-by-pitch on Will Middlebrooks.
David Ortiz? Sure. Dustin Pedroia? Yup. You wouldn't be surprised to hear those two as Yankee killers. But what about Felix Doubront and Pedro Ciriaco? This season, it's been those two who have come up huge.
Pedro Ciriaco comes through in the tenth inning with a bloop single that scores Jarrod Saltalamacchia from third. The 3-2 win earns the Sox its first series win over the Yanks this season.
Pedro Ciriaco is the starting shortstop for Boston tonight, as an ailing and slumping Mike Aviles takes a rest to hopefully mend his turf toe.
