Marlins vs Red Sox recap

Six run innings are a lot of fun -- especially when the Red Sox do them.

The Sox rode a six running inning to a 8-2 win over the Marlins on Tuesday. Tim Wakefield went six innings, surrendered six hits, two runs, one walk and struck out for to get the win.

David Ortiz hit his fifth home run of the season in the fourth inning. Ortiz finally seems to be coming around and this only means good news for the Red Sox. If Papi can get going, this offense will be hard to stop.

Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury, Nick Green, George Kottaras and Ortiz all had two hits. Ellsbury also had two stolen bases.

Hanley Ramirez's return to Boston was an uneventful one. He went 1 for 4 with a strikeout. But still, he's hitting .329. He's a solid player.

Sox continues the series against the Marlins Wednesday. It'll be Brad Penny against Andrew Miller.
