1988 Red Sox Season Replay: Red Sox Roll Rangers, 6-2

Game 6 of 162:

Oil Can Boyd who had an awful 1988 season looked like the 1986 version in his first start of our replay season. Dwight Evans homered twice and continues his red hot start. Evans is now hitting .476 on the season with three homers and five runs knocked in.

The Red Sox are now 5-1 and sit alone in first place in the AL East. The Red Sox return home to face the Brewers tomorrow. Here is the boxscore and the game story from the Red Sox win in Texas:

1988 Red Sox Season Replay: Texas Bats Silenced by Clemens

Game 5 of 162:

 Roger Clemens was dominant once again. He has now pitched over 17 innings and has yet to give up a run while striking out 26 guys and walking just 4. Mike Greenwell got out of his early season slump with a grand slam off Charlie Hough.

The Sox cruised to an easy victory and now sit at 4-1 and tied for first with the Blue Jays. Here is the game story and the boxscore:

Texas Rangers (3-2)000000000050

 An efficient outing for Roger Clemens usually means a win for the Boston Red Sox and today was no exception. The 25-year-old right-hander held the Texas Rangers to a long line of goose eggs. He struck out 11 and gave up 5 hits in the 10-0 shutout.

 "Roger really got it done out there today," said Boston manager John McNamara
