Schilling did alright until a sixth inning meltdown -- four hits and two errors (on one play) -- bumped the score from 2-0 to 5-0. I missed the errors (Alex Cora and Schilling) and left work mid-inning. Arrived home in time to see Eric Hinske batting for Wily Mo Pena, who had been pulled and was flexing his left wrist (the one operated on earlier this season) in the dugout.
"Bright" spot: Gabe Kapler doubled in the ninth. He now has three hits in his last 38 at-bats. Probably earned himself a few more starts this week. Yay!
The Yankees and Angels are 5-5 after seven innings (Slappy is 0-for-4 with 4 strikeouts).
Curt Schilling (3.84) / Jake Woods (3.88), 10 PM
After taking two of three from the Angels, the Red Sox head to Psycho Field. Lineup:
I saw this horseshit lineup at SoSH and I half-figured it was a joke. No Yook, no Manny, Loretta at 1B, and Kapler still on the team. But there it is, posted at the Globe. ... Now watch us score 17 runs.Crisp, CF
The Yankees are in Anaheim.
