Sox Pile Up Two-Out Runs Again
Over the past three days, 28 of the Red Sox’ 30 runs have scored with two outs. The runs can demoralize an opponent - "backbreakers," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. They also have allowed Boston to maintain a 1 1/2-game lead in the American League wild-card race over the idle Texas Rangers.
"I think everyone has kind of been waiting for this. It’s kind of been searching for that offensive identity all year. We've not really been consistent. We haven't had the games like this, like we kind of envisioned early on." -- Jason Bay
