Kick ’em While They’re Down: Sox-Jays Gamer III

Yesterday’s sound thrashing of Buehrle was good stuff. After today, through six games @ TOR, the Red Sox will leave town with at worst a 3-3 record against them on the season.

But wins in May count, too, and the Blue Jays are hurtin’. The wins have gotta come from somewhere, and going 4-2 against the pre-season favorites at their house while they lack full firepower works nicely.

Dempster vs. Happ. Comment away!

  • Happ threw 5.1 innings of shutout ball (one of only two games where the Sox never scored) last time out and is a relatively effective pitcher, lifetime. Papi sitting against the lefty on turf. Ruh roh.

  • 2-1 Sox after 1.5, Happ is wild and over 50 pitches already.

  • Dempster is wild himself. Walks a couple of guys, 1 out, 2 on, Bautista and Encarnacion due up.

  • Walks Bautista on 5 pitches, yikes.

  • And he gets the DP on the 2-0 pitch to Encarnacion. Dempster is lucky to be at only 48 pitches after 3, still just the 1 run.

  • Happ lasts 3.2, leaves the bases loaded for Pedroier.

  • Who grounds to short. Still 2-1 Sox after 3.5.

  • Feels like Sox should have won this game 8-3, but instead they win it 3-1 with some serious tension in the late innings. (Is Bailey hurt? Hanrahan allowed a leadoff hit in the 9th before getting a popup and a DP.)
