Star 3: Will Middlebrooks
Middlebrooks is still trying to work out of his slump that he has been in for the majority of the season. He went 1-5 with 1 run scored and 1 RBI. Hit hit a home run in the second inning, his 8th of the season.
Star 2: John Lackey
Wow, what a start from Lackey. He pitched 6 amazing innings before the rain delay. He gave up 1 hit, and 1 run while the run was not earned. Lackey improved to 2-4 on the year and is not quite the starter that the Red Sox hoped for but is what fans have come to expect.
