    Red Sox 4, Royals 0:
    The way a win should be…

    Posted by Christine E. at 10:21 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (8)

    To paraphrase Harry Potter (I saw the movie this weekend, and anxiously await book #7..) Kason Gabbard was bloody brilliant in his 3rd start since taking over for a rapidly recovering Curt Schilling, throwing a complete game shutout against KC, his first since High School. He also took a no hitter into the 5th inning, and only gave up 3 hits the entire game, while walking 1, hitting 2 and striking out a career-high 8 batters, the last for the final out of his 9 inning, 107 pitch effort…The only trouble he had was in the 5th inning where he had the bases loaded, but was saved by a wonderful fielding play by Dustin Pedroia who managed to get the runner out in the nick of time…Kason’s record now stands at 4-0 with a 1.69 ERA

    And all the offense in the contest came from the long-ball, with Pedroia and Manny having solo shots in the 4th, and Big Papi with a 2-run homer in the 6th…

    Schilling moving forward: After 2 innings (and 31 pitches) of a simulated game yesterday, Curt Schilling is scheduled for at least 2 rehab starts with Pawtucket, the 1st being Saturday against Louisville. From Tito: “…He threw the ball in his bullpen and today better than at any point since he arrived in spring training. That’s a very fair statement. I think we could have given him a week off and maybe he could have gone out and done that, and the rebound effect is he’s right back to where he was. This way we tried to do it with some consistency and foresight. This way he has a chance to pitch a good game, bounce back, and pitch another good game…”He pitched some pretty good games this year. He just didn’t bounce back the way we needed him to.”

    While Lugo extended his hitting streak to 6 games, and currently has a batting average over 200, he screwed the pooch on getting picked off during last nights game…

    He’s Back…Former pitcher and member of THE 25, Curtis Leskanic-the-mechanic is now working for the Sox as a pro scouting consultant. He was so cool, although I was always afraid his arm would just coming fly off and hit someone…

    Coming up: Tim Wakefield takes the mound for game 2 against KC for the 1st pitch at 7:05pm. Leo Nunez, a call-up from AAA Omaha, will oppose Wake.

      I’m calling it now: Wake goes 7, Sox win 8-3, and Manny goes yard on back to back nights.

      Hi Christine: how’s married life treating you? I’ll now ask you what everyone asked us less than a week after getting hitched: So, when are you going to get pregnant? 🙂

      Just kidding: hope all is well.

      GO SOX!
