Victor Martinez Bombs Birds Out of Park

Power and swagger, baby. Power and swagger.

Behind a solid star by Jon Lester and the amazing feats of strength by Victor Martinez, the Red Sox cruised past the Orioles on Wednesday, 14-6.

V-Mart hit two home runs -- including a grand slam -- to finish 3 for 5 with 6 RBI. Dustin Pedroia also went 3 for 5 while Kevin Frandsen also hit a grand slam.

On the hill, Lester dominated for seven innings. He allowed three hits, one run, three walks and struck out three. The strikeout numbers should be higher and the walks should be lower, but still you can't complain about seven innings of one-run ball.

Alan Embree, trying to fight for a job, pretty much sealed his fate by giving up four runs and four hits in the ninth inning. Say it with me now: HOO-RAY!

Sox play the Twins at 1 p.m. on Thursday. It's on ESPN with Nomaaaaah in the broadcast booth.
