The Red Sox won a 3-game series at Fenway for one last hurrah at the end of August. Tim Wakefield was smoked in another 200 win attempt which turned out to be a 15-5 loss in game one. The Sox took games 2 and 3 to close out the last winning series of the season.
Laser Show: David Ortiz
Don't Fall Behind: Tommy Milone
The young lefty is having a great start to the season. Oakland continues to come up with great young pitchers, and this one will probably end up elsewhere soon. Tommy Milone can keep the A's in the game, but the Sox could rattle him easily.
How we see it goin' down
The Sox are feeling good and have been able to dominate teams of equal or lesser records. Pitching has built up some confidence and aside from the final game of the White Sox series, the bats have been hot. The Red Sox will knock the A's around and come away with a sweep.
