Extra Bases

Sox jump to early lead

Big Papi sent Fenway South into a tizzy with a 2-run HR in the first off Jon Leicester of the Orioles, not to be confused with Jon Lester of the Sox, who pitched last night, Tike Redman hit his first home run of the season off Daisuke in the bottom of the inning to make it 2-1, but J.D. Drew jump started a 2-run rally in the second with a leadoff double. Julio Lugo doubled him home with two outs and Jacoby Ellsbury followed with another double, making it 4-1.

That’s where it stands, end of 2.
