A wonderful, sunny afternoon at Fenway Park. The first six Boston batters reached base -- chasing Tampa starter Mark Hendrickson after only 30 pitches. All six scored and the first-place Red Sox cruised to an easy win behind Orson Wells.
Kevin Millar reached base four times, Doug Mirabelli "legged out" an infield hit to deep third in the third (and then looked like he needed oxygen from Lynn Jones), and Tony Graffanino made his Sox debut with an RBI double off the Wall in the fifth.
Yesterday was also the 20th anniversary of the day Laura and I met.
The Red Sox are in Chicago for four games against the White Sox, who lead the Central by 11 games.
Clement / Buehrle at 8:00.
