Red Sox Sweep Yankees – 1st Time Since 1990

What a Game, What a Series. I have never seen a series played greater by the Red Sox in years. After an awesome game yesterday, the Red Sox came back to Fenway to close the series out and they accomplished that in a BIG way.

Michael Averett Lowell
February 24, 1974

San Juan, Puerto Rico
Height: 6-3
Weight: 210 lbs.
Age: 33
Pronounced: N/A
AVG .306
HR 3
RBI 14

OBP .338
SLG .548

The Red Sox were down 3-0 in the 3rd inning with two outs, when the game changed. Manny Ramirez got up to the plate and hit a solo Home Run to make the score 3-1. Then JD Drew made contact and hit another Home Run. Following that Mike Lowell and Jason Varitek both hit Back-To-Back Home Runs making it 4-3 Red Sox lead. It was the first time in team history that they hit Back-To-Back-To-Back-To-Back Home Runs and only the 2nd time in MLB history. (JD Drew was part of a 4-HR night last year)

Later in the game, the Red Sox were down 5-4 when Mike Lowell hit a 3 run homer to put the Sox on top 7-5. Finally in the top of the 9th, Papelbon came into the game to pitch to Damon, Jeter, Abreau. After striking out the first two, Bobby got on base putting A-Rod (slappy mcblue-lips) at the plate. Papelbon got A-Rod to ground out and the Red Sox swept the Yankees. This is the first time since August 31-September 2, 1990.

The Red Sox will be facing the Toronto Blue Jays tomorrow and Tim Wakefield will be pitching against Ohka.
