Bad pitching and hitting fully aligned for the Red Sox last night: Aceves was Keystone Cops bad and the offense was shut out on 3 hits in 7 innings of a rain-shortened game (two of the hits came with 2 outs in the 7th). Well, the bullpen got rest (only Aceves and Wright pitched last night), and Papi cooled his heels (possibly literally) at the right time.
Today, momentum would appear to be in the Red Sox’ favor, as Lester faces good-but-perpetually-injured Brett Anderson (sort of Bedard-lite), who sprained his ankle in the 1st inning last start against the Rays on the 19th, and left the game after giving up 4 runs. Who knows what will transpire at 4:05 ET today, though? Comment away!
