ESPN – Red Sox vs. Braves Box Score, June 18 2007 – MLB

Hey, look, offense! Homers, even! Weird.

The Red Sox took a lead in the second when Coco Crisp hit only his second homer of the year, a solo shot off of Chuck James. James was solid most of the rest of the night, and the Braves tied it in the third thanks to some nice hustle from Thorman, who legged out a leadoff double then scored on a sac fly.

In the third, they took the lead on a double from McCann, scoring Renteria, and after Andruw and Francoeur popped up and Thorman was walked to load the bases, James drove in a run with a bloop single to make it 3-1.

Finally, the Braves broke it open in the fifth when McCann hit a three-run homer. James allowed another homer to Crisp (one all year coming in, remember) with one out in the sixth. He’d thrown 96 pitches, so Bobby went to the pen.

Renteria got the run back with an RBI single in the bottom of the inning. JD Drew hit a solo homer off of Kali in the seventh, but Thorman hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the inning to make it 9-3. McBride screwed up in the ninth, allowing a run and two other baserunners, and Wickman had to come in to get the last out.

Three hits apiece for Renteria and Chipper, while Harris and Thorman each had two and a walk. Andruw, meanwhile, looks sick or something and is down to .205. Seriously, he needs a day off.
