Nice to see Jake throw 6.2 strong innings.

Reed was less than perfect in a non-save situation, but at least he was throwing strikes and didn't walk anyone.

1 through 4 in the lineup: 9-19, 6 R, 5 RBI, 2 HR.

Maybe we should have Gillaspie hit clean-up more often.

Connor was coming off a 1-14 stretch so I don't know if he's consistent enough to hit in that spot.

Anyway, I'm shocked, shocked that this lineup actually scored six runs. Baseball is a funny game.

Maybe Robin should tell these guys, 'you hit, you play...you don't hit, you're on the bench...'

On a related topic when I saw that Keppinger was benched my first thought was if the Sox were saddled with another bad contract since they signed him for three years.

He can't be as bad as he's started can he? (Of course we said the same thing about Dunn right???)

If he doesn't start producing that's a bad start for Hahn as far as free agency is concerned.

Considering everything going 4-4 on this roadtrip is a blessing.

The Mets not pitching an unbeaten ace coming into the game with an ERA under 2 had something to do with the offense tonight. Two losses on this trip came against starters no one has beaten this year. Another loss was in a game started by the Rangers' ace in which the Sox scored 6. In another loss Sox held a 5-3 lead going into the bottom of the ninth. The challenge of hitting tonight was considerably less than it was Tuesday, even though the Sox had never faced neither Harvey, nor Hefner.

As for Keppinger, I think he's very tradable. Many believe he will hit, as he always has. The biggest surprise may be the frequency with which he is striking out. But strikeouts seem to be way up all over baseball.

Agree

We can only hope this is the start of something good. The Angels are coming to town with a 11 and 22 record and just maybe the Sox can send them on their merry way with a Sox sweep.Actually I would be happy with a series win.

Funny how games can be won without Adam Dunn sucking the joint up.

Unfortunately I can give you 14 million reasons why he won't be benched even if it helps the team.

These are the Sox remember.

Time for a run. I predict the Sox will go 8-2 over their next 10.



When I'm wrong pretend you didn't read this post...

True there are so many deserving Sox beating down the door to be the DH.

The Sox 20-game winning streak started tonight.

Now that's a slogan for the season - do you fancy getting t-shirts printed, you could make a fortune?
