Game #28: Will Middlebrooks homered twice, David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia also went deep, as the Sox beat the Royals 11-5 to end a 5 game losing streak. Middlebrooks hit a 3-run shot in the 1st and a 2 run homer in the 8th to become the 1st player in Sox history with at least 1 extra-base hit in each of his 1st 4 games. Dubrount allowed 5 KC runs over 6 1/3 innings, giving the Red Sox bullpen a needed rest. That's 1 win in a row! Pictured: Will Middlebrooks is congratulated by David Ortiz.
