Quintana gets a well deserved pick me up from the bullpen.

If the pitching can hold steady and they just pick up the hitting a bit the season can salvaged. As for the game, it reminded me of many in my younger days.

After losing three very winnable games in a row, I'm more relieved than happy w/the W. Nice to see the bullpen bounce back after a couple of hiccups.

Back to .400!!

When was the last time these guys got more than eight hits in a game?

Now 18-112 with RISP this season (.160) 1 for their last 18 chances!!!!!

11th time out of 20 games, three runs or less (55%). 5th straight game three runs or less, and 7th time in the last nine.

The Hawks score more in a game then these guys. LOL.

These guys make the great Sox teams of the 60's look like the 27' Yankees offensively.

The bullpen actually DIDN'T blow it. Yay!!!

I think I heard Stone say "we needed a laugher like this." I would never call this game a laugher...but I'll agree that the Sox (and we fans) needed it.

The bullpen threw strikes today, more or less. Jones walked Chisenhall in the seventh, but got the three sixth inning hitters he faced, when the Indians were coming back; He didn't put his seventh inning walk into scoring position with a bad pickoff attempt, either. A bullpen not wanlking hitters and not making mistakes would have won at least two more games on this homestand.

Jones came in and limited the damage even when a hit could have tied the game. Maybe without the Rios homer, the pressure of the go-head run at third with none out would have changed Jones' approach. Or maybe Ventura wouldn't have sent Quintana out in the sixth with a 1-0 lead with the hitters who loaded the bases with one out due up in hte sixth.

The bottom line is that the bullpen didn't break today and the Sox won. Reed continues to do his job as closer.

The Sox should have scored more runs, of course, although the failure isn't as flagrant as the Indians failing to score with the bases loaded and one out. Two on and one out in the third and two on and none out in the eighth went nowwhere. In the third, the hitters who failed were the hitters who drove in the only Sox runs today. In the eighth, I was surpised Gillaspie didn't bunt the runners over after the Indians brouht the lefty in to face him. Getting that runner over to third with one out in bottom of the eighth would be huge. Gillaspie had some success sacrificing in Fresno. Fortunately Reed made the at bat an obscure footnote in a Sox win.

The offense is still broken, but at least they won.
Averaging than 3.3 runs/game, good for 14th in the AL.

Only 1 for 2 with that plan.

If by 'salvaged' you mean winning 83 games or so, then I agree with you. If you mean winning the division or wild card and getting to the playoffs? No...
