Still Winless at Home

April 10 vs. Tampa Bay Rays


WSI Playdate Funtime:
Hopscotch
Letís just throw stones on the first 8 innings and jump right to the 9th, shall we?

Short Take: Defensive blunders early prove costly when Sox fall just short to Tampa Bay Rays, 6-5.

Donít let that 6-5 score fool you Ė most of this game was pretty boring, except for the bottom of the 9th.

It wasnít even a fun game to watch our supposed up-and-comers. Yoan Moncada continued to struggle at the plate, striking out 3 times, until he finally sneaked a single past 2nd base in the 7th inning, and walked in the 9th. And mostly unimpressive Sox starter Carson Fulmer struggled with all his pitches, except perhaps in the 2nd inning. Inconsistent in the strike zone, he frequently fell behind, walked a bunch and plunked a couple. With the score 4-0 and bases loaded, he left the game in the 5th for long man Hector Santiago.

Striving to be equally as unimpressive, the Sox defense chipped in a couple of costly blunders in the 3rd inning. Tim Anderson dropped the ball on a sure-fire pick off play that allowed the runner to stay on base. Then left fielder Nicky Delmonico let a single get by him and roll all the way to the fence, allowing the Rays to score 2.

And the Sox offense apparently still hasnít thawed out, showing little against Rays starter Blake Snell and their bullpen Ė at least until the 9th. Through 5 innings, Snell had a no-hitter going, but did allow 3 walks. Finally, Tyler Saladino broke up the no-hitter in the 5th with a ground rule double. Adam Engelís fielderís choice grounder shortly thereafter scored Delmonico to make it 4-1 Rays.

But the Rays took that run right back in the 6th when Carlos Gomez homered off long reliever Hector Santiago, and they added another in the top of the 9th off of Gregory Infante.

Reliever Aaron Bummer was one of the few non-bummers for the Sox today; he came in to the 9th with a couple on, and struck out Denard Span and Joey Wendel to end the inning.

With the Rays leading 6-1, the Sox bats awoke in the 9th. Tim Anderson doubled, then stole 3rd. Yolmer Sanchez continued to rack up his contributions to the 2018 team with a sac fly that scored Anderson. Yoan Moncada walked. With 2 on and 1 out, the Rays brought in their closer Alex Colome. Avi Garcia hit a soft tapper for the second out. But Jose Abreu muscled a golf shot off the end of his bat over the center field fence to make it 6-5 Sox. The sparse crowd held their breath when Matt Davidson came up and walked for the third time in the game. With Davidson on 1st and 2 outs, it was up to Omar Narvaez - but he lined out to right field to end the game.

How about a home winner tomorrow, boys? The Sox try not to get swept (again!) tomorrow at 1:10; James Shields vs. TBD.
