Dallas WOW-Boys

After being shutout in the first game of the series in Arlington, the Red Sox went on an offensive rampage, culminating in a 6-0 win on Thursday. Andrew Miller tossed 6 1/3 strong innings, yielding no runs on only 3 hits while striking out 6 (including Josh Hamilton 3 times).

The Sox pounded out four more HRs, two by Adrian Gonzalez (22,23), one by David Ortiz and an oppo job by Saltalamacchia. The win was the 80th of 2011—putting the Sox 30 games over .500. Since their 0-6 start, they have gone an amazing 80-44.
