On the night the Red Sox honored the 2004 World Series team, the 2014 edition rapped out 12 hits and got 6.1 strong innings from John Lackey in a 4-0 win over the Atlanta Braves at Fenway Park.
Boston's 1st run scored in the bottom of the 2nd inning when Jonny Gomes scored on a doubleplay grounder by Daniel Nava. A.J. Pierzynski's (pictured) RBI single in the bottom of the 3rd gave the Sox a 2-0 lead. Jackie Bradley Jr. doubled home another run in the 6th and Gomes completed the scoring with an RBI single in the 7th.
Lackey picked up his 6th win of the season, shutting Atlanta down on 8 hits over his 6.1 innings of work. He struck out 9 and didn't walk anyone.
Xander Bogaerts led the Sox with 3 hits; Pierzynski, Gomes and Bradley Jr. each had 2 hits.

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).
