Game. Set. Match.

Behind a solid performance from Daisuke Matsuzaka, the Sox beat the O's on Sunday, 9-3, to sweep the three game series.

Dice-K gave up three runs in 5.1 innings to earn the win for the Sox. It wasn't the best start -- he did give up eight hits -- but I'll take this out of Mr. Matsuzaka.

The Sox were led by Jason Bay and Jacoby Ellsbury. Ells had three hits and three RBIs, while Bay had two hits and three RBIs. They each hit home runs in the victory. Dustin Pedroia, Victor Martinez and Alex Gonzalez all had two hits.

It was a good series for the Sox. A sweep is always nice. Now it's off to Kansas City for a four-game series. Let's hope the Sox can pull off another sweep.
