*Official* 6/6 D-Day Postgamer ,Angels take out
the Sox with their #1 pitching nemesis beating them again.
Watching Weaver throw that 67-85mph stuff by the Sox was another testament to how some guys just got another teams number, plus that guys who know how to pitch, can get by with less stuff than the sabermetrics guys will acknowledge.
Sox did manage 11 hits overall, but could not come up with the clutch hit, while the Angels did.
Dunn's 1st two at bats were bad, but then he came back with 3 hits including a long bomb in the 9th....too bad, cuz he had the sacks packed the first couple of times up.
Rienzo is leaking oil at this point. His last few outings have been bad.
I was counting on him as the #4 or #5 starter the rest of the year, but looks like he might be on the Erik Johnson track lately.
Saw that the Sox have had the best starting rotation ERA in the league the last 3 weeks, and the bullpen has been good over the same stretch.
Surprising. Last nite was the first really bad outing from a starter in the last 3 times thru the rotation.
The bats did slumber a bit during that stretch, so they lost low scoring games.
Sale tonite and Quintana tomorrow need to right the ship before they come home to take on the Tigers for 4.
