'Rocky Mountain Fry'; Sox Pound Colorado, 11-4

Ryan Dempster must be wondering why the Red Sox can't support him like this all the time. Boston pounded out a season-high twenty hits on the way to smiting the Rockies at Fenway, 11-4. Four different Red Sox players collected three hits (Dustin Pedroia, Daniel Nava, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jose Iglesias), while Pedroia knocked in four runs in the rout. Dempster pitched six solid innings, giving up just two earned runs on six hits while striking out four. The "all glove, no hit" Iglesias is now hitting .434—with well over 100 ABs. The Red Sox wrap us this silly two-game inter-league fiasco tomorrow afternoon. Thanks, Bud!
