Sox Go For Series Sweep Today

TB = Totally Bad. The boys are taking care of business against the lowly Devil Rays this weekend. Josh Beckett spun a beauty in the opener Thursday night (4-1 win), we witnessed the return (and fall) of David Wells Friday night in another win (8-4), and Curt Schilling won his 200th game last night, beating the Devil Dogs 6-4. The tense moments have been few and far between during this holiday weekend series - it's almost seemed easy. Sox have banged out 35 hits in the three games.
The lowlight came Friday night, when Wells took a line drive off his surgically repaired right knee. The big lug was pitching great until the top of the 5th, when Travis Lee hit a low, hard shot right back through the box. Wells went down in a heap of pain. Fortunately, all the tests after the game showed no structural damage, just a deep bone bruise. Still, as someone who has had major knee surgery in the past year, a line drive off the knee is your worst nightmare. When it first happened, you thought Boomer might be out a while; now they're hinting that he might be able to make his next start.

Sox currently hold a 2-game lead over the Yanks. Wakefield vs. Hendrickson this afternoon.
