(Photo by Winslow Townson/Getty Images)Your 2013 Carmine Hose secured their 81st victory tonight—guaranteeing at least a .500 season. It was pretty much a "rocking chair" win, subduing the White Sox 7-2. Seven Red Sox hitters had multiple-hit games—Jacoby Ellsbury leading the way with three hits. Jake Peavy delivered another solid start—going seven innings and giving up just two runs in beating his old team. Xander Bogaerts started at shortstop and delivered a 2 for 3 night at the plate—knocking in his second big league run. The kid is now hitting .333 and looks about as comfortable as a 20-year old can be in The Show.
