Red Sox vs Nationals coverage
Red Sox vs Nationals recap
Not a big game story here, but hey! The Red Sox won! 11-3!
Thanks in large part to a big six-run 8th inning. The Red Sox had a season-high 17 hits on the game against the MLB's worst team. Jason Bay and Jacoby Ellsbury each had four hits, while Dustin Pedroia had three of his own. It was a total team effort from the offense -- something we haven't seen in awhile.
Another solid start from Brad Penny: 5.2 innings, three runs, two walks and three Ks. The bullpen did not allow a run, although Daniel Bard made things interesting by loading the bases in the 9th.
Let's hope we can win a couple more against these Nats. On Wednesday we'll see Jon Lester take on Craig Stammen.
