Wake Gets Run Support And The Red Sox Win 5th Straight
This one was over after 3, and the hits kept coming, in bunches. Mark Loretta, Alex Cora and the ever reliable, we need him next year Trot Nixon all had 3 hits. Every starter but Manny and Papi scored, and again, the major's best defense allowed no errors. That's nine games in a row without an error.The last time that happened was 13 years ago. We are seeing something special with this 2006 edition of our Sox. Anybody not happy with the right now make-up of the team must have other problems facing them, for I think all is just fine. We do not need a 5th starter until July 1, and hopefully Matt will be back by then, back to his pre All Star form of last year. That might be asking a lot, but we deserve it.
Tavarez pitched an uneventful 7th, Hansen breezed through the 8th but allowed 2 meaningless runs in the ninth. He will remain with the club in the long reliever role, suggesting that Tito is tiring of the antics of Rudy and Judy. SSHH, don't tell anyone, but WE ALL ARE!
In Keith Foulke news, there IS no news. His elbow is still hurting. We can only hope he'll be back to the form he showed in late April and May.
Jon Lester goes to the hill tonight. And we go for 6 in a row. I have a real good feeling about this one. And the weather? Perfect.
