    Red Sox 17, Angels 8:
    A Completely Unexpected Outcome…

    Posted by Christine E. at 5:15 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    I love games like this.

    Correction: I love games like this–when it’s the Sox doing the routing…

    And while That Clay Person wasn’t as sharp as he was in his last outing, with a 17 run offense behind him, he certainly pitched well enough. Going 5 2/3, throwing 109 pitches, 65 for strikes, Buchholz gave up 4 runs on 8 hits while walking 3 and striking out 2…

    And Youk, who was out of the lineup in the final game of the Cookie Debacle (as it will be forever known), obviously had no lingering effects from him groin pull, hitting a solo shot in his 1st at bat during Monday’s contest. He was intentionally walked, hit by a pitch, had an unintentional walk, and a double…

    And how bout Mike Lowell! In the lineup as DH because Joe Saunders was a left-hander, went 4-4 with three doubles and four RBIs…Yay!

    Scott Schoeneweis’ who pitched the 9th last night, threw 26 pitches, 14 for strikes–and gave up 4 runs on 4 hits while walking 2 and striking out 1…Yeah, I know, the Sox could afford to give up the runs, but he was really the better option than Alan Embree? Really???

    And just thought I would mention: Error #6 for Adrian Beltre last night, despite his great (double, home run, and drove in three runs) night at the plate–no, it did not impact the scoring, but this is rapidly becoming a regular occurrence. At this rate, he is on track to have 36 errors! Now, he probably won’t have that many, but what he has so far is certainly troubling…

    But how bout Victor Martinez throwing out another base stealer last night? That makes 3 since Friday…perhaps this trend will continue? One thing I don’t like though is the fact that he is partially blaming the pitching staff:

    “Definitely the pitchers have been better. I’m getting the ball out there with the little time they give me. Like I said, it’s all the pitchers. They’ve been doing a lot better.” Maybe it isn’t meant to be snarky…but it sure seems like it…

    Finally, tonight is the night: Boston Red Thought’s Podcast Debut on BBA Baseball Talk, the official talk show of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) 10:30pm start time. Stop on by and say hello! 347-884-8690. BBA founder Daniel Shoptaw, of C70 At The Bat and Peter Schiller, Baseball Reflections and me will be discussing the latest and greatest goings on in major league baseball and other baseball-related topics.

    Coming up: Jon Lester, coming off an absolutely brilliant start of 7 innings of 1 hit baseball, while striking out 11 batters, takes the mound in game 2 of this 4 game series against the Angels. And since April is behind us (his historically worst month), let’s home he can recreate the brilliance of last week, and the bats continue to be on fire after the offensive onslaught of last night. He is opposed by Angels’ starter, Ervin Santana. 1st pitch 7:10pm…
