Meanwhile, Crawford (pictured) went 1-for-3 with a walk; he scored 2 of the 5 Red Sox runs.
Red Sox starter Aaron Cook pitched 7 strong innings allowing 1 run on 5 hits and no walks. Vicente Padilla got the win in relief with a perfect 8th inning.
Adrian Gonzalez broke a 1-1 tie with his 7th home run of the season, a 3-run blast over the Monster; he drove in 4 runs on the night. Pedro Ciriaco had his 4th 3-hit game of the season. It will be interesting to see what the Red Sox do with him when Dustin Pedroia comes back Thursday. Jim Monaghan 7/16/2012 10:03:00 PM Tweet
