Sweeps A's Hoy!?
Last week, the Red Sox cooled off one AL West power (the Angels) by recording a three-game sweep. Wednesday night, the Sox will attempt to give the A's the same rude treatment.
After winning the first two games of this three-game set in fairly emphatic fashion, the Sox send ace Pedro Martinez to the mound for the finale.
This is the final game of the season between the Red Sox and A's. The Sox have won seven of the first eight ... Martinez has held A's third baseman Eric Chavez to three hits in 21 at-bats ... Varitek has struggled against Hudson, producing just two hits in 12 at-bats
