Default *Official* 6/13/19 Sox Bullpen Beats Yankees Bullpen Postgamer

Awesome. Neither starter was great, but both serviceable, and then the Sox bullpen shuts them down WITHOUT Colome!

Anderson with the big homer, and my guy Leury! Sign him for three more!

Great game, Gio goes tomorrow! Let’s guarantee at least a split, and notch .500. Go Sox!

22 years old and they wouldn’t give him a pitch to hit. 500 tomorrow!

Sox outwalked the Yankees 7-2. So much for the idea that walks don't matter.

Can't keep letting a guy hitting .178 bat behind him. He's hot right now and teams are just going to pitch around Eloy.

Some huge home runs by TA7 and Leury tonight!

Marshall and Bummer are beautiful to see. 7Ks in the last 3 innings from the pen. Great pitch to close the game - ended up right down the middle, despite LeMahieu's yapping.
Gio tomorrow to finally get to .500, hopefully.

Herrera hitting 98 on the TV gun was sweet to see too. Starting to see a solid late inning bullpen develop.

Eloy being patient and taking his walks is a good thing. Make them throw strikes kid.

Yes and how about 3 Ks for Herrera. 2nd straight good outing for him so hopefully he is getting back on track. Marshall, Bummer, Herrera, and Colome is a good back end of a pen to cover the last few innings with a lead.

Fun night at the ballpark. Lively crowd (lots of Yankees fans) and a tense, exciting game. Every time Leury Garcia gets a hit, Mohoney's heart breaks
a little.

If Jimenez continues to hit in front of Alonso, the will get a lot of walks and won't see much to hit. For that matter, the Yankees didn't give Alonso anything to hit two on and Rodon on deck with two outs. The Sox might have received fewer walks tonight with Moncada in the lineup and Anderson hitting deeper in the order.

For all the walks the Sox took tonight, they really didn't take advantage of much. They left the bases loaded in the fourth. In the fifth, the leadoff walk to Sanchez came around to score, but two of the five runs were homers and two others reached base with hits before Anderson's home run.

Garcia was the key to the win, putting the Sox on the board and putting two in scoring position after they have fallen down by four and then getting the eventual game-winning solo homer after falling behind 0-2 and connecting on the 11th pitch. When Schwarber did that the other day to tie a game, MLB had a breakout story about it.

Renteria certainly made all the right bullpen decisions tonight. Maybe the matchups favored Bummer closing tonight, with just a one-run lead, Herrera got through the heart of the Yankee order during a season when he's been struggling against less imposing hitters.

Of course, Renteria hedged when he was asked before the game if Coome would be available, and he hedged a bit. If Bummer had given up the lead, Renteria might have been accused of saving him for the Giolito start, but it all worked out.

Would you, with Alonso hitting behind him? That's gotta change. Congrats to Aaron Bummer on his first big league save. Hopefully Colome is good to go tomorrow. I guess with him throwing 40-plus pitches on Tuesday they wanted to rest him a bit more.

A fun game, and I move to 4-2 on the season. A good crowd, the NYY fans near us were well-behaved, and in addition to DD Night it was Polish Heritage Night: costumed dancers on the field pre-game, special red Sox caps with the white eagle on the side and "Polska" on the back, and the pierogi pop-up on the right field concourse. Delish.

Colome had to throw 40 pitches to get the 5 out save two days ago when Bummer struggled. Good to see Colome pick up Bummer after a rough outing and then Bummer return the favor when Colome was still fatigued from throwing so many pitches on Tuesday.

Good for Bummer's development too. He's going to be here for a few years. In fact it might even be a dress rehearsal if the Sox do trade Colome later this summer.

That's why Renteria was asked bout Colome's availability. Colome had a day off. Colome has only pitched four games in June. There are plenty of elite closers who would have come back with one day of rest to close out a game.

I have every confidence in Renteria's integrity, even if I don't agree with every decision he makes. I'm not even arguing that Colome should have been used in tonight's game, only suggesting it would have been an element of discussion if things hadn't gone quite right.

By the way, when people defend Pete Rose as a manager for only betting on his own team, imagine a similar scenario where hypothetically, he was managing the Sox and had money on the Giolito start, but not the Nova start. You have to be able to trust a manager's integrity above all else, even while questioning his pitching changes or calls to sacrifice.

With Happ on the mound, it actually made sense to start Leury and put him in an important spot in the lineup. As for the home run against Ottavino, I guess that’s why they play the games. Play that matchup 100 times, and Leury probably homers once or twice. Fortunately, tonight was one of them.

At the very least, we seem to have reached a point where we are no longer pushovers in our own ballpark.
