Yawn: Red Sox Put Up Ten Runs Again, Beat Up Rockies

Call them the 'Donald Thumps'. You know how a certain presidential candidate says, "We're going to win so much, you'll get tired of winning"? Well, that's how it's starting to feel around old Fenway Park. Boston put up another double-digit run tally, thrashing Colorado, 10-3. Both Jackie Bradley, Jr. (29 games) and Xander Bogaerts (18 games) extended their hitting streaks—and even Blake Swihart got in on the action by clouting two triples. The Carmine Hose were trailing 2-0 until 'Bogie' launched a towering HR to left to cut the deficit in half. From there, it was "Katy-Bar-The-Door". Steven Wright finally got some run support and went seven solid innings for his fourth win of the year. A very satisfying—and increasingly typical—win.
