On Sunday, the Red Sox avoided a sweep by beating the Pirates 4-2.
Remember former Tigers 1st-round pick Andrew Miller? Well, he got his first win as a member of the Red Sox. Miller pitched 6 innings, gave up
5 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks and added 4 Ks.
In a repeat of last season, the Red Sox roster is devastated by injuries:
Josh Beckett has the flu, Clay Buchholz has a strained lower back, Carl Crawford has a left hamstring strain, J.D. Drew has a bruised left eye, Rich Hill has a left elbow strain, Bobby Jenks has back tightness, Jed Lowrie has a bruised nerve in his left shoulder, Dice K is gone for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery and Franklin Morales has a fractured right thumb.
On the day that Detroit retired former manager Sparky Anderson's No. 11 - the Tigers defeated the Diamondbacks 8-3.
The Tigers scored 7 runs in the 8th inning. Detroit's in 1st place in the AL Central - 1 game ahead of the Cleveland Indians.
'Sweet' Lou Whitaker showed-up to honour Sparky...
No. 11 is set in stone now...
Remember, last week, when I featured Sara Jean Underwood on the World Naked Bike Ride? How could you forget, right?
Well, Ms. Underwood is at it again! She posted some sweet pics via TWITTER of her camping & fishing with her Hot friends...
