    Red Sox 11, Royals 8:
    And That is One Perfect Homestand…

    Posted by Christine E. at 3:58 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (3)

    Wow, after a crappy 4-6 road trip, a 7-0 home stand is perfect for what ails the Sox–Lets just hope that the whole crappy road trip/stellar home stands is the way the Sox will be operating this year–my heart will not be able to take it..

    Speaking of which…I am so glad I did not watch this game, except for fact that I missed the 2 grand slams, which would have been way cool. Otherwise, Daisuke’s pitching performance would have had me popping Tums by the 3rd inning…

    His line: 5 2/3, throwing 118 pitches, with only 67 for strikes! Which translated into six hits and 3 runs, while striking out 7. The worst part? He has 6 walks–and 2 passed balls…YUK…

    From Daisuke: “It wasn’t very good. It hasn’t been for a while now. There are a lot of reasons. It is not really something I prefer to discuss out in the open, but rather something I need to digest within myself.”

    Fun Factoids on grand slams:

    JD Drew’s last one (of course) was during the 2007 ALCS against Cleveland. This was his 4th in his career

    Mike Lowell’s last one was last year on May 19th, against the Braves. This was his 7th in his career

    Last time the Sox hit 2 grand slams in 1 game? I did see that one: In 2003, When Bill Mueller made major league history and hit 2, one from each side of the plate…

    Last time 2 different Sox players hit one is a game? 1995. Jon Valentin and MO Vaughn–at Skankee stadium.

    Last time 2 different Sox players hit one at Fenway? 1984. Bill Buckner and Tony Armas…

    The Sox lead all of baseball with TEN double grand slam games…the team in 2nd place? The Oreos (!), with 6…

    And the player with the Most Grand Slams in active play right now? Yep, Manny Ramirez, with 20. He is 2nd in history only to, Lou Gerig, who had 23…

    In the history of the game, there has only been 76 Grand Slams–with 36 of them being the AL…

    Coming up: The 1st of 5 games in the next 6 days that will happen in the middle of the night…Yep, its time for the 2nd Left Coast Trip (if you count Japan and the 1st 2 games in Oakland…) Tim Wakefield gets the starts for the Sox, opposed by Oakland Ace Rich Harden. 1st pitch: 10:07 pm…UGH…
