The 3 game weekend set was the Sox second series on a 3 series road trip. Here's how the series went down: Game 1: It took 10 innings to decide game one of the series but it ended up being worth it for the Red Sox. Boston starter Clay Buchholz tossed 7 innings of 4 hit baseball and only allowed 2 runs, which scored courtesy of a Pedro Florimon two run home run. Aside from that Buchholz struck out 9 and walked 3 but exited the game with a no decision. Red Sox knotted the game at 2 in the seventh inning on a Jacoby Ellsbury single which left it up to the Sox pen to hold the line.

The Red Sox were able to pick up their fifth straight win on the road on Sunday against the Minnesota Twins, but it took a little while to do it. The Sox came back out and captured the win after a three-hour rain delay.

Up until now, seeing “John Lackey” and “one hit” in the same sentence would be surprising. Unless that sentence was something along the lines of “John Lackey gave up one hit on the first pitch and then 10 more after that.” All joking aside though, it seems as though Lackey has made a turnaround after taking a...
