No Prisoners Taken. Again.

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
Another day, another slaughter north of the border.
So, how do you top winning by 12 runs on Saturday? Win by 13 on Sunday.
The Red Sox continue to be the hottest team in MLB right now, winning their 9th straight game, 14-1 against the helpless Toronto Blue Jays.
It was as perfect a game as could be played.
Like I did yesterday, here's how much of a rout this was:
-Four bombs (Pedroia, Ortiz, Gonzalez and Youkilis, and none of them were cheapies)
-Five of the nine starters scored two runs
-Every regular scored a run except Drew (who went 0-for-5 and 4 Ks) and Saltalamacchia
-Six starters had at least two hits, and the first five batters in the order batted six times
-Jon Lester pitched eight innings and allowed just a home run to Jose Bautista and a scratch single
The third straight Sox sweep was a 35-6 composite score.
They can't win by 15 runs tomorrow, only because the Red Sox have an off day on Monday, and face the Rays in St. Pete on Tuesday night.
