Wins all around!

Today was an awesome day to be rooting for Boston, as the Red Sox took their second game in a row from the Indians and the Bruins took Game 5 from the Rangers, eliminating New York and propelling themselves into the Easter Conference Finals.

Job Lester went seven innings but didn't earn the win, because even though he managed eight strikeouts he also gave up four earned runs. Instead, Junichi Tazawa got to be the pitcher of record, as he was pitchign in the eighth when the Red Sox rallied for four runs. Andrew Bailey, hopefully off of the disabled list for good now, earned his sixth save of the season.

The Red Sox can clinch a series win tomorrow, as they guaranteed at least a split with today's win. Felix Doubront will look to get his fourth win, and lower his ERA - it's currently closer to six than five.
