Run Support For Floyd!

June 29th @ Kansas City Royals


Immunity:
Dayan Viciedo
Exiled:
The Relief Pitching

Dayan was on base twice, scoring a run, while the bullpen made things a bit more interesting than it should have been when replacing Gavin Floyd.

Short Take:Gavin Floyd actually gets run support in a 4-3 win in Kansas City.

Run support? What a foreign concept if you're a pitcher named Gavin Floyd. Floyd has had the dubious distinction of having little run support on nights he has pitched, gaining several "no decisions" in the process where he pitched more than well enough for a win. But, tonight in Kansas City, things were a little different, as our Palehose got four runs in the first four innings to give him all of the runs necessary to win this one 4-3.

In the second inning, the Sox scored a trio of runs. With one out, Mark Kotsay doubled and scored on a single by AJ Pierzynski. After Dayan Viciedo singled AJ over, the next two batters (Gordon Beckham and Juan Pierre) produced run-scoring plays--Beckham's a single to knock in AJ, and Pierre's a groundout, which knocked in Vicideo. Two frames later, Alexei Ramirez singled in Beckham to give our Palehose a nice 4-0 lead.

Suddenly, Floyd began to exhale. Four-run leads are few and far between for #34. Perhaps he exhaled a little too much, as the Royals made things interesting in the 5th with a 3-spot, including a 1-out single by former Sox hero Scott Podsednik.

The bottom of the 8th produced a panic-inducing moment for Sox fans when the Royals loaded the bases with two out. Fortunately, with the glove of defensive substitute Omar Vizquel, our Sox were able to get out of the inning leading instead of trailing. Floyd has a victory, the Sox are back to 1.5 games out of first. Here's hoping it continues tomorrow as Jake Peavy goes up against Zack Grienke. Same time, same place, same channel.

TBGR Diary:
Though I like what Omar Vizquel brings to the game, I'd like to see Dayan Viciedo start more often. He really looks like he belongs on this team.
