The Boston Red Sox won at home against the Texas Rangers with a score of 8-3 sweeping them in the four game series.  This makes Boston’s fifth game won in a row.  With David Ortiz coming out of his hitting slump and bad pitching from the Texas bullpen, it was an easy game for the Red Sox getting on base 11 times with walks.  Good win for the Red Sox on Patrios Day.

Ortiz who has been struggling to connect with the ball for the early part of the season seems to be coming out of his slump with two doubles giving him his first two of the season.  Dustin Pedroia and Julio Lugo each hit a double yesterday too.  Pedroia had two RBIs during the game and Ortiz had three RBI.  Jacoby Ellsbury and Lugo each picked up a RBI as well. 

Clay Buchholz was the opening pitcher for Boston throwing for six innings and only giving up five hits and two walks but was able to get six strikeouts bringing him to 1-1 for the year.  David Aardsma, Javier Lopez, and Manny Delcarmen were brought it to finish off the Rangers.  The bullpen did have some trouble as Aardsma gave up two runs and Delcarmen gave up one run.

Boston will take on the Los Angeles Angels tonight at home for the first game of a three game series.  This should be a very good series as the Angels are playing some good baseball just like the Red Sox.  If you have a chance, get out there and watch this series and root the Red Sox on.
