With Snyder only going 5, somebody was gonna have to pitch 2 innings. I have no problem with Francona leaving him in there with the lead.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Game over, Sox win 9-4. Decent outing for Snyder, had some trouble again in the fifth but this time the defense wasn't helping him out too much. Hopefully this calf injury isn't serious because the Sox can't afford to lose any more arms. Hansen should only go multiple innings in blow-out situations as he does appear to be ineffective in his second inning. Moyer just can't catch a break against the Sox.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Kason Gabbard vs Felix Hernandez today. Yeah it isn't a very sexy matchup but they can't all be. Gabbard is your average junk-tossing lefty from what I hear. Nothing in the 90's and has to pitch to the corners and change speeds to be effective. Hopefully he can stay out of the middle of plate but at the same time not walk a lot of guys. This Seatle lineup isn't the most difficult to pitch to but if you go out there throwing the ball down the middle they will score some runs. The Sox have never faced Hernandez, who is having a tough year despite having great stuff. He's the type of pitcher who is going to give this team fits. I expect him to shut the Sox down but hopefully I'm wrong.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Good start for Mr. Gabbard. He gives up hits to the first two batters but then gets Beltre to ground into a double play and Sexson to ground out. Location looked good that inning and his fastball has more life than I expected.

Homerun Mike Lowell! 1-0 Sox. Already the 6th Red Sox homer of the series.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Gabbard asked for that...

Little surprised Coco couldn't even reach the cut on that liner by Ichiro. If his arm's an upgrade from Johnny's, I haven't seen it yet.

Gabbard's second inning, not so good. He walked the #9 man with 2 outs and had to face Ichiro with the bases loaded. Of course, Ichiro won that one. 2-1 Mariners after 2.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Ortiz singles in Crisp with 2 outs to tie the game at 2. How about that jump Coco had off Hernandez? Rookie mistake.
