So much for any thoughts of “revenge.”
Adrian Gonzalez‘s seventh home run of the year was a big one, springing the game wide open and making sure that the Red Sox had the last laugh at Kevin Youkilis‘ return to Fenway.
While Youk said and did all the right things in his first trip back to Boston since being traded, there’s no doubt the team’s former third baseman would have liked to get a W for Chicago on Monday. His two doubles weren’t enough to propel the White Sox to victory, however, and the Sox survived the one-man assault.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is giving Gonzo our “Welcome Party” player of the game after his huge homer. Who’s yours?
