Red Sox Recap
Sox almost got no hit yesterday vs. Marco Estrada. That’s not great. He took it into the eighth inning where Chris Young mashed a tater over the monster in left. He got out of the inning but then let up a double before he got pulled and the sox started to rally a little bit. They chipped away and finally had a two out chance to tie the game so they pinch-hit Marco Hernandez for Christian Vazquez and after swinging at a pitch that should’ve been ball four, he flew out to end the game. As disappointing as that was I cant blame him for the loss. The sox definitely shouldn’t have been no-hit by Marco Estrada for any amount of innings past two. It definitely doesn’t help that JBJ is icy cold since his hitting streak ended. Hopefully he figures it out again ASAP Ferg.
More importantly than the lack of offense until the last two innings, Eduardo Rodriguez sucked. He threw 90% fastballs. What was he thinking? He was shaking off Vazquez the defensive genius catcher. I mean when you throw strictly fastballs you’re gonna get your shit pushed in that’s just a scientific fact. So somebody’s gotsta have a talk with him and tell him to maybe mix in a breaking ball every once in a while. We need him to be good.
