BOS 5, BAL 4: Offense needs a slugger huh?

Evan Brunell@evanbrunellFeatured ColumnistSeptember 4, 2008

Down by four runs headed into the seventh inning the Boston Red Sox rallied past the Baltimore Orioles scoring five runs combined in the 7th, 8th, and 9th for a come from behind victory and sweep of the O’s

Dustin Pedroia (does not seem like a slugger yet) collected another three hits out of the cleanup spot in the win.

Justin Masterson earned the win over two innings pitched in relief.

Star of the Game:  Team

Remember folks this is a team game and even though we lack a big slugger behind Big Papi everyone in the lineup has to hit and they did it when it counted today.

Next Game: Rangers

We get to see Josh Hamilton again.  Wahoo!
