FINAL: Red Sox 9 Tampon Bay Rays 2. Jon Lester Is Now 6-0 And Stephen Drew Hit A Grand Slam. Holy Shit.
Wow, where do I begin? Let me start with Stephen Drew. This is a big day for him. He has officially earned his way off of my shit list. Not only that, Im about to give him a ball washing. Pick your jaw up off the floor.
Drew went 2 for 3 on the night with a double, a grand slam and 4 RBI. The dude is now batting .348 this month with 3 home runs, 3 doubles and 12 RBI. I just cant keep him on my shit list. I cant do it anymore.
Yes, he batted .154 in April. Yes, he missed over a month of baseball after (allegedly) getting beaned in Spring Training. Yes, his lazy, pussy of a brother stole $70 million from the Red Sox. But when you put up numbers like this, you dont deserve to be shat on. Im sorry to all the Drew haters, but I just cant do it. I mean, Im a Masshole but Im not an asshole.
Anyway, this game wasnt just about Stephen Drew. Will Middlebrooks had a double and a home run. And Dustin Pedroia went 2 for 5 and now has a 7 game hitting streak.
Jon Lester is continuing to make the rest of MLB his bitch. He went 7 innings and allowed only 2 earned runs. The dude is now 6-0 on the season. The Red Sox are now 5-9 this month, with Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz making up 4 of those wins.
Dont get me wrong, Im not bitching. Its great that the Red Sox have two aces. I just hope thats enough to take the Red Sox to the promised land.
