Quote of the Day
Casper Wells on robbing the Braves’ Reed Johnson of a game-tying homer in the eighth inning of yesterday’s 3-1 victory (from Fred Mitchell in the Trib):
“I saw the replay and I said, ‘Wow, that’s really special,’ I never did anything like that before, so I’m just happy I got to help the team out.”
Play of the Day
Great news. PK is back in the lineup after a stay on the DL and a short rehab stint at Class AA Birmingham.

…that the last three series won by the Sox have been against two first-place teams (Detroit and Atlanta) and Baltimore, which is just 3.5 games behind Boston in the A.L. East?
