Everything's Bigger in Texas, Including the ERA's

The Sox put up some more crooked numbers on the Green Monster scoreboard tonight as they tagged Ranger pitchers for 10 more runs. The Sox scored a combined 37 runs in the three game series against Texas. Tonight's game started out slowly for the Sox at the plate and the Rangers threatened to draw first blood when they loaded the bases in the second. Dice-K performed another Houdini act to get out of the jam and cruised for 7 shutout innings. In the bottom of the second the Sox bats came alive, feasting on pitches up in the zone. The team batted around and Ortiz had another 3-run homer, at the end of the inning the Sox had put 9 runs on the board. Boston added another run when Jeff Bailey had his first career hit and RBI in the eighth inning. Delcarmen and Timlin closed out the game with perfect innings.

Unfortunately the Sox did not gain any ground on the Rays who won in extra innings against Oakland tonight. The other bad news for the Sox is that the Rays now get to feast on some Ranger pitching for their next series in Texas.

Sox Win 10-0 BOX SCORE

The Rays are without Crawford and Longoria. Maybe the Rangers bats will mimic the 17 run outburst of the other night. Maybe Hamilton's kid is here and he's back in the line up. The Ranger's had been thinking they were still in the WC race and want to take it out on the Rays. Go Rangers! (Now, not the past 3 nights.)
