The Boston Red Sox weren't predicted to make the World Series let alone the playoffs. But if things keep going like this, you never know what might happen.
John Lackey was strong for six innings in his return from the DL while David Ortiz and Stephen Drew each knocked in two runs to help the Red Sox to a 6-1 win over the Houston Astros. The win gave the local nine a four-game sweep of the visiting Astros and increased their winning streak to five games.
