Movin’ On Up: Sox-O’s Gamer I

The Sox have won 8 of their last ten and is six games back in the loss column from Baltimore.  Clay Buchholz gets the rock at Camden tonight, while Tommy Hunter stands in the Sox way back up the ladder.  Comment away.

  • Bucky craps the bed in the third and coughs up a 2-0 lead to make it 4-2. Then it’s 5-3.
    Then David homers in the 6th, a freakin’ bomb onto Eutaw Street.
    Tying run scores on a balk when Middlebrooks, on third, distracted Hunter and drew a balk.
    Then Bucky puts two on with one out in the bottom of the sixth and gives way to Miller.
    Bucky can’t locate his fastball tonight.

  • Miller gets out of it quickly.
    On to the 7th, 5-5.

  • Kevin Gregg replaces Hunter.

  • Buchholz line: 5 1/3 IP; 6 H; 5 ER; 4 BB; 2 K. 94 pitches, 57 strikes. ERA for season: 7.84

  • Runners on 2nd and 3rd, 1 out, and Gregg is told to INT walk Ortiz.
    Gonzo up.
    I know Gonzo hits into a lot of DPs, but this isn’t smart.

  • Gonzo drills one to left but it’s a sac fly. 6-5.

  • Will the Thrill lines one up the middle, 7-5.

  • Will isn’t cooling off.

  • Whoa. KC 5, NYY 0, top 7.

  • Ladies and germs, Andrew Miller.
    Throwing SMOKE!

  • Nice finish by Aceves. Sox are back to .500

  • And the Red Sox are no longer in 5th place.

  • So, whomever thought Aceves would be a good closer, raise your hand.

  • Am I allowed to raise my hand if I was cautiously optimistic? (I think you can actually verify that in some thread or other in the last couple days before the season started.) He still has a-ways to go to bring the ERA into respectable territory, but I feel solid confidence when he comes in these days, and he’s K-ing more people with more zip on his fastball than I remember.
    Also, he appears to never need a day off. 3, 4, 5 days in a row. Multiple innings in extras, 4-out saves, availability on nights most closers would need a day off, etc.

  • Aceves reminds me of Julian Tavarez when it comes to versatility. Rubber-band arm, can make spot starts, etc. He’s been fantastic if you ignore that one game against the Yankees.

  • “And the Red Sox are no longer in 5th place”. Technically this is not (yet) true IBM, though I’m fairly certain that come this time tomorrow it will be. Our teams are certainly trending in opposite directions at the moment.
