Red Sox: They Did What ?

From CNN News:

BOSTON (AP) — It took the Boston Red Sox 10 pitches to hit four straight homers and three days to complete a sweep of the New York Yankees.

In another thrilling chapter in a rich rivalry, the Red Sox tied a major league record with the home run streak and got their third consecutive comeback win with a 7-6 victory Sunday night despite Daisuke Matsuzaka’s shaky debut against the Yankees.

“It certainly brought some life back into the ballpark in a hurry,” Red Sox manager Terry Francona said of the third-inning homers off rookie Chase Wright that gave Boston a 4-3 lead.

Mike Lowell hit one of those homers, then connected for a go-ahead, three-run shot in the seventh.

“I haven’t been part of anything like that, not even in Little League,” Lowell said. “The dugout was going crazy. It was really a cool feeling.”

WoW, 4 home runs in a row, that is amazing. Of course for Red Soxs fans, they would have it no other way – then to do it against the Yanks.
