Well, That's the Pirates For You: Game 77 Thoughts

Sox Win! 4-3

-The Sox really sleep walked through this game. While watching, I thought for sure they were going to let this one get away from them, but then I remembered we were playing the Pirates. The Sox finally pulled their heads out of their asses and started playing in the seventh after going down 3-0.

-With the win the Sox have won their 8th straight series after dropping a three game set against the Rangers to begin June.

-The offense was in a slumber until the seventh. Prior to that point, they only managed 3 hits. Even with the 4 spot in the seventh, they were outhit 8-13 during the game.

-If you check out his stat line, 6 innings and 3 ER, but he didn't looke nearly as good. He gave up 10 hits during his outing, and he looked destined for a big inning, but Oz got him out of there early which was a great move.

-I'm a bit shocked that Ozzie made the call for Monetero. Actually, I'm really shocked that he was brought in. It's possible that Ozzie was trying to show faith in him, because he was sent down after the game to make room for Politte.

-Uribe's triple was huge. Juan is very dangerous during his hot streaks. I don't understand why he runs so hot and cold.

-James brought up Pods knack for driving in runs as of late, and he struck again. He srove in Juan after he tripled and Thome struck out.

-Big Ups of the Night go to the 'pen. Monetero pitched well. Thornton was dominant with 3 k's in his inning of work. Big Bad Bobby made me sweat it a bit, but he got the job done in the ninth. They really held the game down on a night where the team as a whole looked pretty lousy.
