Once Again The Sox Stomp Their Foes In The 7th

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
Andrew Miller made his Red Sox debut on Monday night and made a decent accounting of himself, pitching five scoreless innings. But he allowed a three-run shot to Orlando Hudson, who hit his first home run of the season for the Padres. Miller wound up with a no-decision, as he left in a tie game.
The Red Sox squandered some golden opportunities early, as they came up with single runs when they easily could have been putting crooked numbers up on the board.
It remained tied into the bottom of the seventh, when the Red Sox exploded for 10 runs, as 14 men came to the plate. They did it getting just five hits, but four men walked, and two were hit by pitches in back-to-back at-bats. It was the first time the Red Sox scored 10 in an inning since they did it to the Indians in 2009. this season, and the most of any MLB team in the 7th. The Sox have now scored 64 runs in the 7th inning, the most in any inning by the team, and they lead all MLB teams in scoring in the 7th.
Adrian Gonzalez got two of those hits, and he drove in three runs against his former Friar mates. Kevin Youkilis, Josh Reddick and David Ortiz also had two RBI on the night.
Josh Beckett was scratched from his Tuesday night start, due to that evil "intestinal termoil" once again. The bug seems to be affecting a few players, but you wouldn't know it from the way the Sox are swinging the bats.
Alfredo Aceves will make the start on Tuesday. No word on when Beckett's next start will be.
