Red Sox bang out 18 hits in 8-2 victory over Padres

Sox Top Star: This has to go to right-handed starter Allen Webster for earning his first major league win. Webster went 6.0 innings, allowing just two runs despite five hits and four walks. He struck out four.

Sizzling Snyder: Third baseman Brandon Snyder’s baseball career hasn’t gone as expected. A 13th overall pick in 2005, the 26-year-old has played in just 61 major league games. But he has produced for Boston since his promotion during the final week of June. He homered yesterday and has six RBIs in his past four games.

Some Fireworks: Everyone in the Red Sox starting lineup stroked at least one hit in an 18-hit parade for Boston. Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits, including his second homer of the season. Shane Victorino, Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes, Ryan Lavarnway and Jose Iglesias all had two hits.

Sweet At-Bat: DH David Ortiz had a tremendous at-bat in the sixth inning. On the ninth pitch, he lined a single to right field to score two runs and give the Red Sox a 7-2 advantage.

Odds and Ends: SS Stephen Drew (hamstring) was not in the lineup for the fifth straight day. He is progressing and might play Saturday. ... RHP Clay Buchholz (neck) threw from 90 feet yesterday after throwing from 75 feet the day before. He will have a day off today. ... RHP Andrew Bailey who has struggled tremendously of late and lost the closer job, pitched a 1-2-3 seventh inning, recording two strikeouts. ... RF Shane Victorino was replaced by Daniel Nava in the eighth. It was just to give Victorino some rest.
