The Red Sox swept the Astros in four games. John Lackey returned to the mound again after spending a couple of weeks on the disabled list and looked sharp, pitching six innings of five hit ball, giving up one run, two walks, and striking out four. The bullpen got the job done afterwards. Much of the offense was provided by David Ortiz and Stephen Drew. Daniel Nava made an excellent leaping catch to record the final out of the series.
PLAYER OF THE GAME:
DAVID ORTIZ 2 for 4, double, 2 RBIs
