FINAL: Red Sox 5 Orioles 0

Well, I guess umpire Tim Timmons lit a fire under David Ortiz’s ass. A day after flipping out over a bad call by Timmons and going apeshit on the dugout phone, he went 4 for 4 with a home run (his 20th) and two RBI in the Red Sox win over the Orioles.

Jon Lester went seven innings and was friggin awesome, tying a career high with eight strikeouts. He didnt allow a run, gave up only four hits and walked two. Lester is now 2-0 since the All-Star break with 16 strikeouts and only two runs allowed.

The Red Sox ended up taking 2 of 3 from the Orioles proving that the Orioles aren’t really the threat in the AL East that some of their ballwashing fans think they are.  Oh yea, and the Tampon Bay Rays lost to the Yankees today. So the Red Sox are back in first place in the AL East. Pissa.
