Superior Firepower Encountered, Requesting Backup: Sox-A’s Gamer II

Yesterday the Red Sox scored 2 runs.  For the first time in three games, that was not enough to win.  Because the A’s are not the Twins.

Today, Doubront returns from injury (?), and takes the spot of the thus-far-very-effective Workman (whose 6-game suspension was finally upheld).  He takes on Brad Mills, whose MLB career thus far has been less than stellar, but whose recent AAA stats are pretty great.  Doubront has been very good for long stretches (and provided some extremely good relief efforts in the Sox’ October run last year), but has never had a sustained full-length season of success.  Hopefully he’s back on track and they can send De La Rosa down for more seasoning, but we’ll see!

    Pete Abe: Red Sox have not drawn a walk in three consecutive games. Hasn’t happened in at least 100 years.

    It couldn’t be more obvious…we’re doomed. But that’s okay, all things considered.

  • At this pace(and these two hurlers), I’m thinking 14-14 going into extra innings…

  • I’m glad he only cost a dollar, because his cup of coffee might not last through the weekend.

  • Hey they scored more than two! Been 7 games since that happened.

  • Pedroia a shell of himself so far this season. Dude might age quick with his style of play. At least he’s hit a good number of doubles.

  • A’s take lead in 8th. Can’t say it wasn’t expected…but I’m still more disappointed than I should be.
