Game 66 Thoughts

Sox win 8-2.

-Buehrle continued his dominance over the Rangers, improving his record against them to 8-2 lifetime. He pitched 8 effective, efficient (103 pitches) innings, only giving up 2 runs. He was staked to an early lead, so he was able to relax and just throw the ball in there.

-Thornton had a perfect inning of relief. He may not be pitching as much as he had earlier, but he is really making Kenny look smart. At the beginning of the season Sox fans could safely say, "Coop is the best pitching coach not named Leo Mazzone," but after Jose proved last year was no fluke and after Coop helped turn Thornton into a legit reliever, he may be challenging Mazzone as the major's pitching guru.

-Every starter got a hit today. Very impressive. Among those starting, were Anderson, Uribe, Widger, and Ozuna. They all got hits. The Sunday lineup produced.

-Thomer number 452! Thome is now tied with Yaz for 29th place on the all time list.

-Ozuna had 3 hits today and is doing his best Ted Williams impression. I know he won't qualify for the batting title, and I know there's still a looooong time left in the season; but how nuts would it be if Pablo hit for .400?

-Uribe has a pulse! He cashed in today with a double, a solo jack, and three RBI's.

-It feels great to hit a lefty, especially one that was absolutely filthy when we faced him before.

Sox Record: 41-25
