Freakin' Jake Westbrook threw a complete game for the win.
I hate the Cards.
Game-time temperature was 95 degrees at Fenway last night.
That translates to airborne baseballs.
The Red Sox and Marlins pounded-out 28 hits between them in a 15-5 Boston rout.
The Large Father whacked his 11th career grand slam - his 18th dinger this season.
Boston, finally, climbed out of the basement in the AL East moving 1/2 game ahead of the Blue Jays - but still 6 games behind the 1st place Yankees.
Mike Aviles , Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Will Middlebrooks also homered for Boston.
Big Papi is now tied with Joe Carter for 52nd place with 396 homers.

1) Ted Williams - 17
2) David Ortiz - 10
3) Rico Petrocelli - 9
4) Trot Nixon, Jim Rice & Bobby Doerr - 8
