I don't think it was a fluke at all. It was a day when everything came together for him on the mound, and he was facing a team vulnerable to his best stuff in a place where he had his best chance to succeed. In the past, he had a few starts with the Sox during which he was a superior, dominant pitcher for five or six innings before losing it, whether he was tiring or whether hitters figured him out or a combination of the two.

Having the ability to do something and having the physical and mental makeup and discipline to do it over and over again are separate qualities.
