TODAY'S WRAPS: August 18, 2007
Big Papi: The grand marshall
Fast start, rough middle
After getting off to a quick lead on homers by Chone Figgins and Vladimir Guerrero, Jered Weaver suddenly wilted in the fifth inning. In one fell swoop, the righty gave up six runs, with the big blow coming on David Ortiz's grand slam. In his career, Weaver is still winless against the Red Sox.

Series at a glance:
Grand frame boosts Sox
The first four innings weren't going the Red Sox's way, but it all clicked for them in the fifth inning. After Julio Lugo rapped a two-run single to put Boston on the scoreboard, David Ortiz delivered the biggest hit of them all -- his seventh career grand slam to lift the Red Sox over the Angels.
