Holy Crap, It's a Win Streak

It's true, the Red Sox have now won TWO in a row.

After last week's many debacles, this two game streak is looking like a miracle.  I hope it keeps going.

Mike Lowell hit two home runs tonight, sparking the offense along with Jason Bay, who hit an early three-run homer.

In other news, the Astros took a 7-2 lead in Florida before losing 9-8 in the 11th.  Just like last year, going to Florida has put a dent in their playoff hopes.  Luckily, this visit came early enough that their deficit is not quite insurmountable.  But without better pitching, it's not going to happen.

Roy Oswalt started tonight and looked good at times.  In the end, he didn't pitch very well.  He was not as strong coming back as Wandy was.  Jeff Fulchino was not very good tonight either; Wesley Wright and Alberto Arias did little to help the cause.
