First half of today’s doubleheader is a re-do of the Aceves/Archer matchup from last week. Aceves pitched well last time (6 IP, 1 R), earning the win. Archer threw over 100 pitches in 4 innings and kissed his bicep after striking out Nava (who hit a 2-run shot off him in an epic 10-pitch AB earlier in the game) to end the 4th inning. Considering the personalities involved and the fact that this is only half the slate today for the Sox…well, given the recent bad blood between these teams, this oughta be pretty fun. Go Sox, win game 1!
