Red Sox: Big Papi hits a triple, pinch pitcher debuts


RedSoxScoreWhat a game last night at Fenway Park. With a final score of 17 to 5, obviously a lot happened. The Red Sox scored in seven straight innings against the Rangers, and after racking up six runs in the second, for all intents and purposes the game was over.
