Some non-weather news, Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon has been named the American League Rookie of the Month for April.

The 25-year-old Papelbon has not been scored upon in 13 relief appearances, throwing 14 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball while striking out 14 and walking just two batters. He converted all ten of his save opportunities to become the Major League leader in saves.

The win by Papelbon marks the second time a Red Sox has captured the Rookie of the Month award; Kevin Youkilis won the honor in May of 2004.
