Halos-Sox Gamer

Jacoby Ellsbury singled, stole second, and scored on a single from Kevin Youkilis to give the Sox a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first.  It's Jered Weaver and Clay Buccholz, and the hits are coming early and often.  Comment away.

The walk to Tek has certainly helped in quickening Weaver’s eventual exit – up to 90 pitches now. Jacoby at 2-2.

Ellsbury swings at ball four and taps to short. Crawford to third, Ells at first. Double steal ju-jitsu lookout!

A hanger to Pedey and he almost comes out of his shoes, fouls it back. Not a good looking swing from DP. 2-2 count, Weaver to 98 pitches with this one.

And then amazingly Gonzo swings at the first pitch, tries to pull it, and taps weakly to second. THAT was a bad at-bat.
But a great inning, made possible by an awful umpiring call on Tek. Thanks, Blue!

Jesus, what a risky play by Gonzo – he fields a hot grounder and fires to third, in the dirt, and Youk digs it out to get the lead runner. A huge play but that was all risk/reward, and the downside was enormous. Yikes.

so, this is why I am not a manager. Buchholz bears down and gets a couple of grounders to end the inning. Huge assist to Youk for digging out Gonzo’s throw. To the bottom of the sixth, 3-2 Sox.

Nice thing about having MLB Extra Innings is I can flip over to the dodgers game after the Sox win and listen to the golden pipes of Vin Scully call the game without a “color analyst”
