Default *Official* 4-25 What NFL Draft? SOX 5 RAYS 2 Postgamer

Nice job by Sale to pitch around the walks.

Credit to Dunn for clobbering a big two-run tater to pad the lead.

look who raised his BA over .100 today!

apart from the walks, Sale looked good today going seven innings.

Nice bullpen work, too.

Also: Gillespie was safe.

Sale a little shaky with command, but dug his heels in and got 'er done.

Yeah, I know I'm off a day but....

Only 7 hits, but they made them count. Flowers has definitely come back to earth at the plate.

Sox have not won 3 in a row this season, a goal to shoot for with Jake on the mound tomorrow night.

They try to win three straight for the first time this season tomorrow night.

2-5 tonight with RISP has jumped the season average up to .170. WOO HOO!

Hey it's progress...

Still aren't hitting well overall.

Nothing to complain about here. Wins are precious and it just feels good to get a few in a row. Hopefully Peavy keeps it rolling and hopefully Dunn has turned a corner that can get him back to what he was doing last season.

Kepp is starting to come up with some nice hits for us as well.

TWTW.

We should just pepper every postgame thread with Major League references/clips until the Sox turn things around.

Great to win.

"TWTW" sucks.

It's pretty much impossible for me every time the Sox win to not picture the Japanese groundskeepers. 'They're still ****ty'.

The Sox have the pitching to compete in the American League. They'd win more games with just average offensive production.

Tonight, they got average offensive production. And they won.

Like any stat, sometimes a starter's ERA can be misleading. I've seen some starters who give up a lot of unearned runs because they have a great deal of difficulty pitching over mistakes. In 2008, it seemed Gavin Floyd gave up an excessive number of unearned runs, really many more than you could blame on the defense. Sometimes it's a dropped two-out fly, but even unearned runs aren't created equal. I once saw the Cubs score 10 unearned runs in an inning after a two-out error that loaded the bases in a still scoreless first inning. And sometimes pitchers stay in the game longer than they should to save an otherwise overworked staff. There is something to be said for a pitcher who eats innings, even if he gives up a few more runs by doing so.

ERAs meant more when starters regularly pitched complete games. Now multimplying earned runs allowed per inning by nine feels a little arbritray. Still, I don't know if I've seen a starter with a great ERA who wasn't a very effective pitcher.
