After an emotional weekend at Fenway Park where what happened “off” the field mattered way more than what occurred “on” it, it was nice to see the Red Sox open up their series with the Oakland A’s with a victory.
Mike Napoli hit a grand slam and drove in five runs, Will Middlebrooks busted out of a slump with a three-run homer and the Boston Red Sox rebounded from a doubleheader sweep by beating the Oakland Athletics 9-6 on Monday night.
The last week of MLB’s season is all great theater, sure, but it’s all terribly, wildly unfair.
Boston dropped its sixth straight and remained winless on this West Coast swing, which finishes with a three-game series at Seattle beginning Monday.
Jemile Weeks hit a go-ahead RBI single in the seventh following Coco Crisp’s leadoff triple, and the Oakland Athletics completed a three-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox with a 3-2 win Wednesday.
Former Red Sox left fielder Manny Ramirez, who was released by the Oakland A’s over the weekend, spent most of the season with the Triple-A Sacramento River Cats. Apparently a fan that watches the games was not impressed with Manny’s choice of hair style and thinks long hair is ruining America.
Brandon McCarthy beat an AL East opponent once again, holding Boston to one run over 6 2-/3 innings as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Red Sox 4-2 Wednesday night.
Jarrod Parker scattered four hits over 6 2-3 innings and picked up his first Major League win as the Oakland Athletics stopped a three-game losing streak by beating the Boston Red Sox 5-3 on Tuesday night.
David Ortiz finished the best April of his career with a pair of solo homers, Mike Aviles hit a three-run shot and the Boston Red Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 11-6 on Monday night.
You can add one more description to the indescribable Manny Ramirez: philosopher.
