Drew, Red Sox slam Yomiuri
TOKYO — Before the game, J.D. Drew watched a replay on the scoreboard of his grand slam in Game 6 of last year’s AL championship series.
Then he hit another one that meant much less. Still, his second homer in two exhibition games was a good sign Sunday night that he’s ready for a strong start to his second season with the Boston Red Sox.
The Red Sox added three runs in the eighth on Jed Lowrie’s homer and Brandon Moss’ two-run single.
In Sunday’s first exhibition game at Tokyo Dome, Oakland beat Hanshin 10-2.
