May 26 Detroit At Sox


Sox Office Smash Hit:

Between Mike "Bats in the"" Pelfrey and Avisail Garcia's continued excellence it seems appropriate

Short Take: Sox jump out to an early lead and the bullpen carries them home.

The Sox were supposed to play two games today, but apparently the third game of the season is destined to always be rained out. It was again tonight but fortunately the skies let up enough for the two teams to play the originally scheduled game, even if it started off a bit soggy. The Sox sent Mike Pelfrey to the mound to square off against Matthew Boyd. Neither of these pitchers has been world beaters this year though Pelfrey has looked better recently. Pelfrey gave up an early lead but the Sox came storming back an inning later, held on until the offense could break through later in the game and went on to win 8-2.

Really the story of this game was the Sox offense. They scored 3 in third when "Mr Everything", Avisail Garcia, stroked a 2-out, bases-loaded double to the left field wall. That hit gave the Sox a 2-run lead they would not relinquish. They tacked on two more in the 6th on a Matt Davidson lead off homer and another 2-out hit from Melky Cabrera that made the score 5-2. Finally, in the 8th Melky came back up with two on and crushed one into the left field seats to set off some fireworks and give the Sox the 6-run lead that would be the final margin. It was a fine night by the up and down offense and fortunately the pitchers made that hard work matter.

As mentioned above, Pelfrey started the game and actually had a solid outing. He only gave up 4 hits and 2 runs over 5 innings and managed to strike out 7. Only one of the runs was earned as Tim Anderson had his 11th error of the season on another poor throw in the first which led to an unearned run. The Second run was scored on an Alex Avila homer to center. Former Sox catcher, Avila is actually having a real solid season with the bat for Detroit. Pelfrey left in the 6th and the bullpen came on and simply nailed it down. Dan Jennings, who walked the only guy he faced, was the only one who didn't perform well, as even Chris Beck sent the Tigers down in order while striking out two. Swarzak, Kahnle and Infante all made short work of the Kittens though Infante did yield a couple of two-out singles in the ninth that ended up not meaning anything as Tim Anderson leaped high to snag the final out on a soft liner headed for left to end the game.

It's good to be back home as the Sox manage to break their losing streak. There will be two games played tomorrow, weather permitting, starting at 1:10 local time. Holland will be going in one of them. I honestly have no idea who will be the other starter. You can Google it or just tune in. Hopefully the Sox can win a pair. If the bats keep hitting like this they should be fine.
