quick and dirty recap as I wasn’t able to watch or listen and just heard a snippet of the post game…
ON THE MOUND
Supposedly (according to Blowers on the bit of post game I actually heard), Joe was getting squeezed. Basically, not getting “edge” call which, due to his low velocity, he’s gotta have. Apparently, Blanco was none too happy with the HP ump either. We’ll leave it at that . . .
FIVE innings ~ NINE hits ~ SIX runs ~ FIVE earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ FIVE strikeouts
} Brandon was sharp for his first TWO innings (retired SIX straight) but then, Fenway reality hit and he gave up a single and a homer (but, not the worst of “re-debuts”, considering the team and the locale).
With Kuma and the King next ups, shouldn’t need the bullpen much but, it will be rested and ready if/when called upon 🙂
AT THE PLATE
The bats remain a bit on the frosty side . . .
~ Kyle and Kendrys the only ones with more than ONE hit and Nick the only one with an extra-base hit (double)
~ Michael M went hitless (with THREE strikeouts) in his return from the DL
IN THE FIELD
Not exactly the solid DEE we are accustomed to . . .
in subsequent plays, Brad made a fielding error and Henry allowed a passed ball in which a runner scored
