More Magic From Coop: Game 83 Thoughts

Sox Win! 13-0

-Coop said he the 3/4 delivery was disrupting Contreras' delivery, and what do you know? He was right! As I wrote earlier, in a bullpen session earlier in the week, Coop told Jose to concentrate solely his high and low arm angles, which resulted in another pitching gem. Contreras pitched 6 and 2/3 scoreless innings and his personal winning streak has reached 17 straight decisions.

-Cotts and Riske pitched hitless relief to finish off the shutout.

-I expected to see Politte today, during the garbage innings at the end, but he didn't get the call.

-This was exactly the type of game the Sox needed. They put a stop to their small two game skid, with a pitching clinic and a hitting display.

-The Sox racked up 13 runs and 18 hits. All 11 batters got at least one hit. (Crede left with an injury. He was hit by a pitch in the left forearm. The X-rays were negative, so he should be day-to-day.

-Paulie and Juan hit bombs, while Pods, Paulie, Gload, Dye, Uribe, and Anderson all hit doubles.

-Big Ups of the Day goes to Juan. On most days he would have been PotG, but what the Sox needed more than anything was a strong performance by a pitcher and Jose filled that void.
