Broussard bruises Sox

If you took a quick glance at the box score for Thursday night’s 15-3 win against the Red Sox, you might do a double-take when your eyes reach Ben Broussard’s name. That’s right, he went 4 for 5 with two home runs, including a grand slam in the first, and a career-high eight RBI. Red Sox starter Josh Beckett, who has been hot to start the season, only managed to make it through 3 2/3 innings, giving up eight earned runs and five walks. Paul Byrd rebounded from his previous few outings and got the victory for the Tribe who won their second straight.

“Ben was unbelievable,” Byrd said. “He sure made me feel comfortable, giving me a four-run lead like that. And the crowd chanting his name was great. That was really cool.”

Wow, what a game by Benny B. Indians hitters hit everything that was thrown to them. They deserve a lot of credit the way they bounced back from the road trip and took the series from the Sox.
