    Red Sox 3, Angels 4 And the downward spiral continues…

    Posted by Christine E. at 12:28 pm in General No Comments

    One good thing about the 10:05 start–I can go to bed when they are winning and not have to face the loss until the morning…

    Because there can never be a season without Manny controversy (or Dan Shaughnessy creating some) the big buzz around town is that Manny is mad about what he perceives is a blown call (Jeter was given an error in Friday nights game, thereby taking away a hit from Manny…) and is now sitting (and sulking) with a “strained hamstring”. First of all, I am not even sure Manny remembers back to Friday, and while he may have been amped up in the moment, he probably blew his 27 game hitting streak the week before by not running out the infield hit he had. Thanks Dan, ’cause having the Sox crashing and burning isn’t enough drama….maybe–and now this is just a thought–you can WRITE A BOOK ABOUT IT…

    Not horrible pitching lines: Kyle Snyder (apparently good Kyle was out and about…) 5.0IP 9H 3R 3ER 1BB 3SO 1HR 85 pitches, 55 for strikes, then Kason Gabbard (who the loss…) 1.2IP 2H 1R 1ER 1BB 0SO 0HR 29 pitches, 17 for
    strikes and Manny Delcarmen: 1.1 IP 0H 0R 0ER 0BB 1SO 0HR 17 pitches, 11 for strikes

    Unfortunately, the hitting was not there last night, as we manage to eek out 3 miserable runs…..and of course the Skanks LOST last night…figures….

    Welcome Dustin Pedroia!: 25 months after being drafted No. 1 by the Red Sox, Dustin has arrived at The Show, where he started at shortstop and batted 9th in last night’s contest. In his second at-bat in the 4th inning he got his 1st major league hit, a single to center. Pedroia is replacing Alex Gonzalez who went on the DL, retroactive to August 19th, with a strained right oblique muscle. He is eligible to return September 3.

    Lenny DiNardo evening was filled with 7’s and 2’s as when he was lit up last night in his rehab appearance for AA Portland. He gave up 7 hits and 7 runs, while walking 2, striking out 2, and giving up 2 home runs, including a grand slam, in 2 innings of work…oooooh boy…

    Tonight: Jon Lester vs. Kelvim Escobar 10:05pm..UGH…
