Sox Topple Diamondbacks

Boston Red SoxThe Boston Red Sox taking on the Arizona Diamondbacks can only be considered the precursor series to the most interesting (only interesting?) interleague series in all of baseball this year – that being the Los Angeles Dodgers coming to Fenway Park and the long-awaited return of Manny Ramirez to Fenway Park. While all of New England is looking forward to Manny’s return in one way or another, the games against the Diamondbacks are still important games, especially when the Sox are four games out of first in the American League East and the AL Wild Card.

Clay Bucholz gutted out a decent performance and helped the Sox put away the Diamondbacks 6-3 on Tuesday night. Bucholz accumulated eight strikeouts over 5-2/3 innings on Tuesday night, but struggled in doing so. He let up three runs on seven hits and one walk. The Diamondbacks worked the count, as well, forcing Bucholz to throw 113 pitches in his shortest outing since May 8.

The Sox offense was lead by a resurgent Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz. They combined to go 4-for-7 with three RBIs, four runs scored and one home run (Ortiz – 13). When asked about Pedroia’s sudden outbreak, Ortiz said “I told you guys before that’s the last guy you got to worry about hitting is Pedroia. I know it’s coming, the laser show.”
