Darnell's Lovin It

Sometimes the guys below the Mendoza line are the ones that come through when needed most. Darnell McDonald did just that (3 for 5, HR) in today's 6-1 win over the hapless Royals. On a day when Jason Varitek tripled for the first time since 2007 and Jon Lester hurled 6 strong innings (albeit with 4 more troubling walks), it was McDonald who was most impressive.

The wounded Sox move on to Arlington, Texas for four against their possible post-season opponents. It should be fun.
