One night after being shut out on just five hits, the Red Sox offense exploded for fifteen runs on fifteen hits in a 15-10 rout of the Astros in Houston. And somewhere, you just know John Lackey was wondering what he needed to do in order to get a few of those runs when he's on the mound.
The Astros put two runs across in the bottom of the first inning without the benefit of a hit. A walk, a hit batsman and four passed balls charged to Ryan Lavarnway helped put the Sox into an early 3-0 hole. Knuckleballer Steven Wright (pictured), making his first career start, lasted just one inning.
Boston scored three times in the top of the third and then pushed five runs across in both the fifth and sixth innings to put the game virtually out of reach.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
