Humber Strike

May 26 @ Toronto Blue Jays


Levels Finished:

Mario dodged a huge barrel in the 4th then shot a bunch of them in the 9th.

Short Take:Phil Humber continues his better-than-expected season. Though he got a no decision, the comedy of errors that went on in the 9th gave our Palehose the final boost they needed to win Game 1 of this 4-game series in Toronto.

In recent years, Skydome has produced some bad memories for Sox fans. In a year where our Palehose are really struggling to keep afloat, I am sure many Sox fans were dreading this four-game series in Toronto. Looking at the pitching matchup, Brandon Morrow, with an over 5 ERA took the mound for the Blue Jays. You know what that means, Sox fans. Our Sox would be one-hit. What was a nail-biter for most of the way turned into a gem thanks to a comedy of errors in the 9th. Phil Humber and the Sox won the first game of this series tonight 3-1.

Humber and Morrow both were on cruise control for the first four frames. Neither team did anything notable with their bats. But, something that happened in the bottom of the fourth perhaps was foreshadowing for what would come later. Corey Patterson was caught stealing second base, even though it appeared as if he got in before the tag, alleviating us of facing a scoring threat. We'll take it, and more breaks went our way later on in the game...Stay tuned!

The Sox and Jays each dented the scorecard over the next couple frames. Our Palehose scored first, as AJ Pierzynski and Omar Vizquel both got on for Juan Pierre, who singled to Jose Bautista in right field, AJ beating the throw home! The 1-0 lead only lasted an inning, as Yunel Escobar got some frequent flyer miles leading off the 6th, hitting a no-doubter over the center field wall.

Humber kept his cool, pitching all the way into the eighth, giving the bullpen some nice rest in the process. He probably isn't too worried about his no-decision due to the fielding display the Jays put on in the final frame, which gift-wrapped the game in our favor. Alex Rios lead off hitting a routine grounder to John McDonald, who airmailed it to the seats on the first base side. Rios then was gifted another base when Marc Rzepczynski threw an errant pitch that got through J.P. Arencibia. Rattled, Rzepczynski hit Gordon Beckham in the foot, who would then steal second. Both Rios and Bacon came home on what was ruled an infield single that plunked down behind first base by Pierre, who knocked in all three runs tonight!

Sergio Santos closed the tab in the 9th, and the Jays were left to pay the bill. Tomorrow night, Mark Buehrle looks to get his fifth win of the season and is opposed by Kyle Drabek. Let's hope our Sox will be "gettin down on Friday." Same time, same place, same channel!
