The Boston Red Sox ended an 11-day, 10-game road trip yesterday with a come-from-behind 6-3 win over the Detroit Tigers. They finished up that trip at 6-4 and are tied for 1st in the AL East with their hated rivals to the south, the New York Yankees.

Other than a rough go of things in the 2nd inning, Tim Wakefield looked pretty good yesterday. He’s been the Red Sox most consistent pitcher this season and if it weren’t for him and the bullpen, the Red Sox probably wouldn’t be tied for 1st right now.

Over the latter part of the road trip, the starting pitching has really started to come together. And with the new look lineup producing, if both of them can stay hot over this homestand, it help push the Red Sox back to the top. Since Terry Francona switched the lineup, the Red Sox are 4-0 and are outscoring their opponents 29-11.

As the old saying goes, if ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
