The Red Sox have taken a series on the road from a first place team. Alert the media! Boston unloaded the heavy lumber today—as three players homered against tough Tampa starter Chris Archer in a 5-3 win. David Ortiz, Pablo Sandoval and Alejandro De Aza all went yard—as The Carmine Hose moved back to within eight games of first place. Big Papi, and The Panda each had two RBIs—and Xander Bogaerts (pronounced correctly by Jerry Remy) had two more hits—including his 15th double. Despite a less than overpowering fastball, Justin Masterson returned to the rotation and delivered a solid five-inning performance—giving up no earned runs. The Red Sox head north of the border for four games against the suddenly very tough Toronto Blue Jays.
