Tight Game Turns Ugly for Orioles, Red Sox Win 13-4

The Sox had a wild one today at Fenway, blasting the Orioles 13-4 in a cool afternoon at the ball park. Curt Schilling had a decent outing, but could have been much, much better. He allowed 4 runs and nine hits over 5 1/3 innings. Today's outing was the shortest appearance this season for Schilling. Boston has continued to pound the ball all over the ball park this season, giving it's pitching rotation major breathing room virtually every game. Kevin Youkilis singled in the go-ahead run in the sixth to score Jason Varitek and give Boston a breather during the tight game. The run support thus far has been phenomenal. The Sox are 18-0 this year when they have scored 5+ runs.

Also from around the league, what an article written by ESPN's Buster Olney. Although I have had biased opinions on steroid use by major leaguers, Olney seems to hit the issue right on the head. Read the article here
