After the first inning where Ryan Lavarnway had four passed balls off of the Steven Wright knuckleball, you'd have thought the Boston Red Sox would be done against the Houston Astros. They weren't and I'm guessing some people gave up on the game.
Folks with this Red Sox team, you simply can't do that.
Lavarnway redeemed himself in the 5th inning with a two-run double to give the visiting nine the lead for good in a 15-10 win over the 'Stros at Minute Maid Park on Tuesday night.
Lavarnway wasn't the only hero either as Jacoby Ellsbury had two home runs and Jonny Gomes came off the bench with another pinch-hit home run, this one of three run variety. And David Ortiz went 4-for-4 with two RBIs.
