The Red Sox started the month of June in Toronto and they came out firing. David Ortiz, Adrian Gonzalez, and Daniel Nava combined for 9 hits and 5 RBI in the game 1 victory. Big Papi lifted a monster homer to left-center to continue his dominance of the Rogers Centre. The Sox came out firing again in game 2, but this time it was the Nick Punto show. Punto went 3-for-4, with a pair of RBI, and was a triple shy of the cycle. The Jays salvaged the final game behind starter, Drew Hutchison. That was Daniel Bard's final start before heading to Pawtucket. Bard went just 1 2/3 innings, giving up 5 runs on only 1 hit and 6 walks. That was brutal.
Laser Show: Will Middlebrooks
Don't Fall Behind: Ricky Romero
Romero is rolling this season and he is pitching well. Romero gets a lot of ground ball outs and the Sox have to make sure they stay away from the double plays. Oh, and he can still record plenty of outs via the strikeout. Romero has recorded 6+ strikeouts in 5 outings this season.
How we see it goin' down
The Sox are flying high and more order has been restored in the clubhouse. The lineup can return to normal and not they won't have to worry about getting everyone in. As long as pitching can hold up (I'm talking about you Lester, and surprisingly not Dice-K), the Sox can do some damage. Again, I may be too optimistic, but I am going with a Sox sweep of the Jays.
