Red Sox Bring The Power Against The Rangers.
Adrian Gonzalez, David Ortiz, and Jarred Saltalamacchia all homered against Texas. Gonzalez, who actually homered twice, now has 5 home runs in the past three games after having zero in the month of August.
On the other side of the ball Andrew Miller dominated. The big lefty pitched 6 plus innings with zero earned runs, 6 strikeouts, and 3 walks.
The former Ranger, Saltalamacchia, had a web gem when he chased a pop foul about halfway up the 1B line. Salty continues to impress in his first full season with Boston.
Both Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia went hitless, but for the most part it went unnoticed. Adrian Gonzalez and Ortiz and back in a big way.
