Game 14 and 15 Thoughts

Game 14

-Garland pitched pretty well, but he's still not all the way back. He seemed to be tiring at then end of his outing, and Oz did a good job pulling him. His rought outings the past two times out, may have worn him down a bit.

-McCarthy makes like $300,000. What a deal! He had another good outing today, 1.2 innings. I like when Oz gives him a solid 2 inning chunk.

-It was nice seeing Jenks pitch a perfect ninth. I hate seeing him put guys on, which he has been doing pretty consistently.

-Podsednik had himself a nice little game. 2 hits, 2 sb, and a run. Not bad, not bad.

-Thome continued his scoring streak. He also walked two more times, bringing his season total to 16. I wonder if he'll end up with more BB's or RBI's once the season is done. (He has 14 RBI)

-Widger is batting a healthy .000, yep, .000!

-Anderson was 0-fer at the plate once again.

Game 15

-Pods is actually hitting real well at the plate now. He had another two hit game, with a double. He had some problems on the basepaths though; he was thrown out twice, trying to steal.

-Mackowiak was in today for Anderson. He put up Anderson like numbers though. 0-fer-2.

-Thome scored again. His scoring streak is at 15 games and counting.

-Juan got off the schneid, and hit his first jack of the season.

-Vazquez pitched a gem today. He went eight strong and only threw 108 pitches. He only allowed three baserunners, and looked well on his way for a no-hitter. That's five solid performances by the Sox rotation, in a row.

-Jenks got the save again today. He's 6-6. For all the worry over the spring, he's doing okay. But then again Shingo started out okay, and then got dumped half way through the season. I heard Jenks' stuff looked a little slow today, but it generally is a bit slower on the second day of a back to back.

-Oh yah, I nearly forgot...

No one was spectacular for the Pale Hose, so he gets the honor, for his solid performance.
