Buchholz Delivers, Bats Do Not

The Red Sox needed Clay Buchholz to step up big time in the Bronx today and he delivered. In six innings Buchholz gave up just 6 hits and 2 earned runs keeping the Red Sox in the game against the Yankee ace C.C. Sabathia. Unfortunately the bats stayed in their deep slumber. Boston could manage just 4 hits in the game without bringing a run across the plate. The Sox have now lost 3 in a row to New York and have not scored a run in 2 games. The Yankees are putting some distance between themselves and the rest of the league and the Sox are getting bunched up in the wild-card pack. Not time to panic yet but there are definitely some dark clouds above.

I get the feeling that tomorrow the Sox will tattoo Andy Pettite, the bats will be back. I hope I'm right.

I hope you are right, but this week sure put a dent in their confidence as well as that of R.S. Nation. They have taken a giant step toward not making the playoffs, in spite of hanging on to the Wild Card lead by a slim thread.
