Auditions to be Grady’s Lady are back open!

The Red Sox and Twins played the second game of a three game series at Fenway Park on Tuesday night. Similar to Monday’s contest, runs were held to a minimum as staff aces Jon Lester and Phil Hughes toed the rubber for their respective clubs. However, Boston was able to tally 2 runs in the early innings on a Dustin Pedroia RBI double and a Xander Bogaerts sacrifice fly. While just 2 runs of support left little margin for error, Jon Lester was able to stymie Minnesota’s offense for 6.1 innings, allowing just 1 run while striking out 6. The Red Sox bullpen then protected the 2-1 advantage by tossing 2.2 innings of no-hit base ball.

  • The Red Sox designated Grady Sizemore for assignment on Tuesday, which officially put an end to the former All-Star’s comeback effort. Sizemore’s battle to overcome adversity is an extremely admirable story, but the 31 year old just couldn’t recapture his old style of play, nor could he sustain the success that he had in spring training of this year.

  • While the Red Sox have played better of late, they’re still closer to the bottom than the top in the AL East standings, and are behind 8 other teams in the Wild Card race. Although things can change between now and the July 31st trade deadline, Jon Lester knows Boston’s current position in the playoff picture isn’t pretty, and that his free agent status could make him a trade commodity.
