That train called New York Yankees that came through last night and flattened that Penny that was sitting on the track derailed today after a 14-1 woodshed session administered by the Red Sox. The Sox were looking to rebound after being swept in a 4 game series in New York earlier this month. Last night's 9 run loss had everyone scratching their heads wondering who in the hell are these guys? They're not the ones who lost 8 straight to the Sox earlier this season.
Kevin Youkilis led the charge to right the ship, albeit one day late (no thanks to Penny), with 2 HR's, 3 hits total, and 6 RBI's. Junichi Tazawa tossed a great game as he scattered 8 hits over 6 scoreless innings. All the bazillions of dollars the Yanks spent on Burnett couldn't save him today as the Sox pounced on him for 7 runs before the 2nd inning was over. They never looked back, totalling up 14 runs on 15 hits. The lonesome Yankee run was a moot point solo shot by Swisher in the 7th inning.
Sox Win 14-1 BOX SCORE
