Talk about a beatdown. The Sox pick up sixteen hits, three homers, and thirteen runs en route to a huge, huge blowout.
David Ortiz is back and showing no signs of rust. Jacoby Ellsbury might even be better than he was when he left. Adrian Gonzalez is hitting homers. And suddenly it’s looking like Carl Crawford has some life in him again. Who’d have thunk it?
Even better, this all came on a night when Coco Crisp lifted the A’s over the Yankees. Current and former Red Sox getting the job done to put Boston up a game in the A.L. East.
