Hanley And Red Sox Sweep Away Evil Empire, 5-4

Cut it out, Hanley! Red Sox first-baseman Hanley Ramirez clouted two HRs and knocked in four in Boston's sweep-inducing 5-4 win over the Yankees on Sunday night. Ramirez was a one-man wrecking crew against The Bronx Embalmers, collecting four HRs in the four-game sweep. Jackie Bradley, Jr. drove in the only non-Hanley run of the night as Boston overcame an early 4-0 deficit. Unfortunately, it was another mediocre start by Drew 'Yeah, Those Are My X-Rays' Pomeranz—going just 3 2/3 innings and giving up all four Empire runs. The bullpen delivered 5 1/3 shutout innings—continuing its MLB-leading run of late. The win pushed The Pinstriped Posers eight games back in the AL East. Bring on the Birds!
