Red Sox Win, No Trade Deadline Results

Red 10, White 2

The Boston Red sox held onto their AL East lead via a 10-2 pounding of the Chicago White Sox.

Jon Lester (11-4, 3.17) got the win for Boston. He enjoyed terrific run support. Boston has scored 47 runs in their last 4 wins.

Adrian Gonzalez and Kevin Youkilis hit their 19th and 15th home runs respectively. Marco Scutaro drove in 3 runs, and 2 runs were driven in by Gonzo, Yook, and Jarod Saltalamacchia. Dustin Pedroia had the other one.

Boston (65-40) holds a 2 game lead in the AL East over the New York Yankees, who swept a doubleheader with Baltimore yesterday.

Andrew Miller (5-1, 5.45) gets the nod for Boston today, at 2 PM.

No Trades For Boston

The Sox struck out in the trade market yesterday, as the trading deadline approached.

They had actually made a deal for Rich Harden of the Oakland A's, but the deal fell through after I went to bed last night. We would have given up prospect Larrs Anderson for him.

The Sox also lost out on Ubaldo Jiminez, who ended up in Cleveland. Doug Fister ended up in Detroit, while Derek Lee went to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Boston will go the distance with their current starting rotation, it seems.
