Yankees vs Red Sox recap

You know what's nice? Beating the Yankees seven straight games. That's niiice.

The Sox won 6-5 behind Tim Wakefield's solid six-inning outing: eight hits, three runs, three walks and two strikeouts. It wasn't Wake's best performance, but he kept the Yankees' offense down and that's all we can ask from him.

The offense came from a multitude of areas. Mike Lowell and Kevin Youkilis homered and George Kottaras went 2 for 4. Jason Bay, Dustin Pedroia and Kottaras each had RBIs.

Ramon Ramirez struggled in relief. RamRam gave up two runs and three hits in .2 innings of work. His ERA "ballooned" to 1.86. Hideki Okajima (1.1 IP, 1BB, 3K) earned a hold and Jonathan Papelbon worked his 15th save of the season (1IP, 1BB, 1K).

Sox go for the sweep Thursday night. The Red Sox send their No. 5 Brad Penny to the mound while the Yanks counter with their No. 1 CC Sabathia. Should be an interesting pitching matchup.
