Boston Red Sox sweep the Whitesox behind clutch hitting and Koji Uehara.

Written by 

Friday: Boston Red Sox 4 Chicago Whitesox 3

Ryan Dempster was up for the challenge against his old rival when pitching for the Chicago Cubs. Dempster continued a stretch for the Boston Red Sox pitchers of allowing three earned runs or less for the 10th straight game.

Dempster finally is regaining his form by throwing 99 pitches (60 for strikes) giving up five hits and three runs in 6 and 1/3 innings. . David Ortiz snapped an 0-for-23 slump with a two-run single for the AL East leaders. Koji Uehara struck out two in the ninth for his 15th save. He worked 1 1/3 innings in his 20th straight scoreless appearance.

The Red Sox bullpen did it once again as Tawaza, Morales and Uehara combined to pitch 2 and 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. Tawaza earned his 20th hold lowering his earned run average to 2.70. 

Saturday: Boston Red Sox 7 Chicago Whitesox 2

Peavy pitched seven strong innings against his former club as the Red Sox took game two 7-2. Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and the Boston Red Sox won for their sixth win in seven games.

Peavy (11-5) allowed two runs and five singles in his sixth start for the Red Sox. He struck out four and walked one while throwing 109 pitches (68 for strikes). Another solid start for Peavy as he gears up for the post season. 

Sunday: Boston Red Sox 7 Chicago Whitesox 6

Ortiz continued his rebound from a miserable stretch with two hits and three RBIs just the series we needed from Big Papi. After three strong performances by the offense and the bullpen the Red Sox swept the Whitesox to improve their division lead to 5 and a half games.

Ortiz is 5 for 9 with six RBIs since going hitless in his previous 23 at-bats. He needs two hits to become the 39th player in major league history with 2,000 hits, 400 homers and 1,400 RBIs.

Uehara once again pitched a perfect ninth earning his 16th save and has really soldidfied the Boston Red Sox bullpen of late.
