It was a classic Fenway score, 12-5, with the two top Sox hitters Dustin Pedroia [.412] and Mike Napoli [.571] leading the offense. Peedy roped a two-run double and Napoli bashed a three-run homer today at Hammond Stadium. [Ft. Myers, Fla.]
Peedy, Napoli lead offensive charge, Buchholz, Bard, Webster sharp, Hanrahan still struggles in Sox 12-5 win

About the Author
Baseball is my life: writing, coaching, announcing, umpiring, reading. I am a registered member of the Red Sox Nation and enmeshed in the team on a daily level, on the internet, on the phone, and at the hardware store. In 1963 I was a Sports reporter at the Syracuse Herald-Journal; I covered Syracuse University sports, HS football and basketball. I was a reporter at the NY Journal-American (1964-65). After 32 years on the English department faculty (1968-2000) I took early retirement to spend more time with the love of my life...BASEBALL ! [BTW, I served as play-by-play announcer for the games that were broadcast on Viacom cable.] Since retiring and moving to Maine in 2000, I have coached, managed, umpired, run fantasy baseball teams, and posted often in websites and blogs. Currently I am the Pitching Coach at the local HS and I umpire at the lower age levels. [55 years of umpiring and counting!] "Baseball is not a matter of life and death...it's more important than that."
