The Red Sox hustled into their dugout after the top of the sixth inning last night, and this is what occurred next: single, walk, double, walk, single, walk, double, single, single, single, single, home run.
Now read that line again slowly, and consider just what happened at Fenway Park last night in a 13-3 Red Sox victory before 37,541. Twelve batters crossed the plate before Indians pitchers - three of them - could record one out in the sixth. When Julio Lugo walked toward the batter’s box at 8:34 p.m., the Sox trailed, 2-1. When J.D. Drew grounded to second for the third out of the sixth 34 minutes and 21 seconds later, the Sox had an 11-run lead.
