Maybe this will be the "launching point" for Spring Training 2013. Lee County Championship here we come! The Red Sox won for the third time in four games, topping the sloppy Rays, 5-2. Taking advantage of three Devil Dog errors, Boston was hitless through five innings until a two-run sixth—capped by Jacoby Ellsbury's two-run HR. After the inning, Rays starter Alex Cobb scuffled with his battery mate, Jose Molina. Aaron Cook looked like Aaron Harang out there (sorry, bad Dodger reference)—hurling six innings of one-run ball. Mauro Gomez (2) and Ellsbury (1) added RBIs in the seventh to widen the lead. Just 14 more wins in 14 tries and the Sox finish the season at .500.
