The short short version:

Sox win, Yanks lose! Yay!

The longer version:

His Craziness, Julian Tavarez had another good start, allowing only 2 runs over 7 innings. Big Papi got thrown out in the first inning for slamming his bat and helmet down after getting called out on strikes. Fortunately it turned out that the Sox wouldn't need him tonight. Dustin Pedroia went 5 for 5 with a two run homer, and J.D. Drew had three hits as the Sox beat the Giants, 10-2.

The strange part about the game was that of the nine hits by the Sox, only one of them was not by either Drew or Pedroia. Or you could write it like this:

PeDrewia: 8-9, 1 HR, 3 2B, 4 1B, 3 BB
Everyone Else: 1-24

With the Yankees 2-0 loss to the Mets the Sox increase their lead over NY back to 8.5 games. The Yanks 9 game win streak comes to an end, and their 9 game losing streak begins (right).

AL East: Sox and Toronto win, Yanks, O's, and Rays lose. Sox lead NY by 8.5, Toronto by 10.0, Tampa by 12.5, and Baltimore by 13.5.

Tomorrow: Matsuzaka vs. Matt Cain. The game is on FOX so its at the highly inconvenient time of 3:55pm EST. Considering FOX's reputation for broadcasting excellence, I recommend watching the game with the sound off.
