Didn't see the game, but reading the online summary seems like Gillaspie has a solid game?

So he's on pace for 95 pr so that should be some kind of record I would think...

How was Gillaspie in the field.
We could easily be going for a 6-0 homestand but I'll take 4-2.

Anytime you beat King Felix it's big, but Axelrod is the bigger story here. How does he continue to defy odds? He doesn't have MLB stuff, yet continues to get results. Baffling.

It seems that Conor can hit. Hitting lefty and throwing right is nice.
I don't know how accomplished he is in the field? He seems ok so far.
He said he almost had several panic attacks today with it being such a big start for him.

He never got a chance in SF so its all new ground. At only 25 he could have a bright future on the Southside.

Hell, he has already exceeded Kevin Bell.

I know it's foolish of me to think this way and should probably be in deep pink, but i'm rooting for him to turn into our 2013 Carlos Quentin. Seems like he has a ton of talent and just needs the opportunity to play every day to realize it.

Axelrod was described by the Mariner radio broadcasters as pitching like the right handed version of a crafty lefty. I think that is fairly accurate.

I know it seems like I have a problem with Keppinger, but I don't, and I felt this way before the season began. If Beckham continues to produce well, the best possible scenario would be for Gillaspie to play so well that Robin cannot bench him, which would allow Keppinger to be the infield super-sub.

No slight against Axelrod, but his style reminds of a typical 4th or 5th starter N.L style pitcher.

Shades of Paul Byrd, who always seemed to give the Sox problems.

An unexpected win against one of the best around. You take it and thank the baseball gods.

I get what you are saying, but they also could easily be 1-4.

As everyone else is saying, today's win was really significant. They basically traded out the win they needed yesterday for the game they should have lost on paper today.

It doesn't seem like game 6 of a 162 game season should be a big game tomorrow, but I feel like it's really important. Win and you are 4-2, have won two straight series and two straight games, and leave town in first place with momentum. Lose and you are 3-3 and feeling like you left wins on the table before you go play the best team in the National League.

The Sox ace needs to do tomorrow what the Mariners ace couldn't today.

If the Sox think they're going anywhere this season they can't be splitting home stands against the non AL elite. Win tomorrow for some momentum before heading to DC.
