Ross and Shoppach Go Yard, All is Right in the World

And back out comes the .gif.  Cody Ross, Kelly Shoppach and David Ortiz all homered tonight to launch the Red Sox to a 7-5 victory over the Miami Marlins at Fenway Park Tuesday night.

Hey, three wins in a row?  See, this is how it should be.  Alfredo Aceves came out in the ninth and slammed the door shut like you read about for his 17th save.  Tomorrow, Felix Doubront takes on Ricky Nolasco, who has lost three of his past four starts.  In Doubront's last outing, he took a no-hitter into the sixth inning against these same Marlins.  Redemption time for Miami?  Doubt it.

The Sox are starting to hit well.  Ross coming back off the DL is a huge boost, especially playing against the Marlins, who released Ross unexpectedly in 2010.  Revenge is a dish best served cold.  And jacking a home run complete with a bat flip is the piece de resistance (no French accents, but just imagine them.)
