G78: Red Sox 11, Marlins 5

It was the Papi & Manny Show for Fireworks Night at Dolphin Stadium.

Ortiz: 3-for-4, 3 runs, 4 RBI, double, 2 HR
Manny: 2-for-4, 2 runs, 5 RBI, 2 HR

Mike Lowell chipped in with three doubles. ... Manny's 3-run home run in the first inning was his 2,000th career hit. ... Tim Wakefield picked up his 150th career in his 300th Red Sox start.

Sadly, Doug Mirabelli and Alex Gonzalez made errors (both in the first inning).

***

Timmeh! (3.86) / Brian Moehler (6.55), 6 PM

Wakefield pitched six shutout innings against Philadelphia on Monday before leaving in the seventh with the bases loaded (all three runners eventually scored). He has allowed three earned runs or less in his last six starts. ... Moehler had his shortest outing of the year in his last start, against the Yankees: four innings, eight hits and five runs.

the streak is over. Dougie and Gonzo each with an error in the 1st. Time to start a new errorless streak as well as another winning streak.

Big Papi just hit #24. Good times.

And #25 later & Manny hit 21 & 22 for good measure. Great hitting, good pitching, and the defense ironed itself out. Good days for Sox fans!
