Manny Ramirez blasted two home runs to centerfield and added an RBI double as the Red Sox outslugged the Indians for a 14-9 victory. Ramirez finished the night 3-for-4 with four RBI and four runs scored. Not bad for someone who spent the time between at-bats chasing moths and eating pine tar.
Not to be outdone, Wily Mo Pena went 4-for-5 with a home run and 4 RBI. Except he was pretty much outdone, because Manny's first homer put a hole in the sky. Or maybe that was the CFCs from Cleveland factories. I didn't check.
Other MLB scores: Mariners lose seventh straight, seriously cramping my taste for baseball… Speaking of cramps, Brad Penny improved to 13-1 despite leaving with a stomach cramp. Doctors later learned he ate a radial tire before the game… Tigers lose on pitcher's throwing error. Whoa, deja vu. I feel like I've been bored by this before.
