C. C. 'Ya!

The Red Sox bounced back from a devastating 3-2 loss on Friday to pummel the Empire (and C.C. Sabathia), 10-4. Jacoby Ellsbury homered and drove in six runs to pace the Carmine Hose as they ascended back into first place in the A.L. East.

John Lackey was decent, but not overpowering, to get his 10th win of the year. He gave up three earned runs in six innings, gave up six hits and walked 2. He did escape a monster jam by striking out two in the meat the Yankee order.

Carl Crawford went 4-4 and scored three times. Amazingly he leads the majors in most 4-hit games this year (4).
