Game 68 Thoughts

Sox win 8-6

-For the third straight game...

  • The Sox won.
  • The Sox scored at least 8 runs.
  • The Sox positional starters all had at least one hit, yes including Juan and BA.
  • The faced a lefty.

-Contreras wasn't up to his form during his insanely long win streak, but he wasn't terrible. He gave up five runs. Most pitchers would be somewhat pleased with an outing like this against the high powered Reds, but Jose in not your ordinary pitcher. He was visibly disgusted, slamming his hand on a water cooler after getting pulled. Good news is that he didn't hurt himself doing this. Better news, he fanned 13 batters, his highest ever. In fact that's the highest total by a Sox player since Alex Fernandez in'96.

-The Sox did awesome to battle back and keep Jose's streak alive. They scored 1 in the seventh, 1 in the eighth, and 3 in the ninth.

-When will Scott Podsednik start stealing bases again?

-Jenks gave us all a scare in the ninth, but he held on for his 20th save in 21 attempts.

-Juanny is tearing it up. He had another two hit game, and hit another homer. He supplied the tying run and what proved to be the winning run for us.

-Big Ups of the Day to the Sox offense for their late inning comeback.

Sox Record: 43-25
