Curt Schilling and David Ortiz reminded the Red Sox last night that these are the A’s, not the Yankees or the White Sox. Now
Bronson Arroyo Kyle Snyder tries to recapture the lightning he found last time and pull off a second improbable win and save a series split. The A’s counter with Joe Blanton, whose ERA isn’t that great (4.95), but remember this — it’s better than Josh Becektt’s.
I predict a breakout game from the Sox offense and a serviceable five innings from Snyder. Why? Because that would be fun. And a two-game winning streak heading into a series with the Royals is a ticket to maintaining a hold on first place through the rest of the week.
