...the sox retired the opposing team 1-2-3? I mean we usually get the job done, but how come it can never be easy? Reminds me a little of the fluke 98 flub season with Rod Beck. He got the saves, but never easily.

Well, Loaiza retired 11 in a row today. So that included two 1-2-3 innings.

I meant to say when was the last time they had an easy 9th inning.

There always seems to be a bloop or seeing-eye single in the ninth, mixed in with a walk. The good thing is, our offense and starting pitching has given the bullpen enough room where the Sox are winning these games. I've noticed that Eddie Guardado of the Twins always has 2 guys on when he saves games. He sucks.

Yeah, that's why in another thread someone brought up a good name for this team would be "the heart attack makers," but Buehrle did have a 1-2-3 9th against the A's on Friday.

Nope...Leadoff man got on base followed by three outs. Then two 1-2-3 innings, then the first two outs of the next inning before the next hit. That's two 1-2-3 innings.

Oh, so you want to get TECHNICAL! Just kidding, I'm sure you're right,,,,I really don't remember the sequence of outs.
But I sure hope he continues to pitch like he did today!

Isn't it great to see a Sox pitcher having a Cy Young type season?

I've been pulling for these guys for 44 years, so I'm accustomed to the harsh realities of being a Sox fan! But I have to say that Loaiza gives me a sense of confidence while watching him pitch that I don't get very often while watching this team! It's a good feeling, and I envy fans of teams like the Yanks and Red Sox and Braves who probably feel that way for all their games!
