It's been all about pitching this week as Josh Beckett and Tim Wakefield earned their ninth and 10th wins respectively against the Atlanta Braves. Jon Lester evened out his record to 6-6, looking more like his dominating self.
On the power side, David Ortiz hit three home runs this week, and no one will forget Nick Green's "amazingness" wrapping the ball around Pesky's Pole for the walk-off home run on Father's Day to beat the Braves
a week ago.
The Boston Red Sox
look to sweep the Braves this afternoon to wrap up interleague play for the season. Boston is 11-8 so far in interleague action.
