Red Sox Hammer Orioles to Sweep Series

By on August 3, 2009 in ,

The Boston Red Sox produced 23 hits collectively in yesterdays slug fest against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.  The 18-10 win completed the two game sweep, putting the Sox just a half game behind the Yankees in the AL East standings. Victor Martinez led Boston with five hits and four RBI’S in his second game with the Sox. Jacoby Ellsbury had two hits and scored four runs, as Kevin Youkilis drove in two off three hits to contribute to Boston’s high-powered offense. Both sluggers have been on a roll lately, showing outstanding play on Friday nights game as well. Not only did Ellsbury hit 3-for-5 with a homer, but also robbed Baltimore’s Luke Scott with a leaping catch in deep center field in the 6th.  Youkilis belted a two run blast in the 7th to give the Sox the 6-5 lead after Jacoby’s defensive heroics.

Boston looks to continue their streak at Tampa Bay this Tuesday and Wednesday for two games against the Rays before squaring off against the Yankees for a three game series.
