“We’re a good team. We’re just not playing good baseball,” first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said. “It’s frustrating the way we’re losing.”
I’m not sure what Gonzalez is on about here. I doubt there is any way to lose that ultimately proves less frustrating. Fewer balls pitched by the rotation that wind up going over the fence would be a good place to start being less frustrated.
Freddy Garcia got a gift win his second time out. If his first two outings are any indication of how he is going to perform today, the Sox might suddenly find themselves playing much better baseball, at least in the bottom half of the frame.
Felix Doubront has struck out thirteen batters over the ten innings he’s pitched this season. He’s also allowed thirteen hits, but both of his outings resulted in wins for Boston even though he has yet to claim a decision.
