Slammed: Game 93 Thoughts

Sox lose 2-5

-This was a pretty trademark performance from Javy. He was cruising along, until he hit his blow up inning. This time it was the sixth.

-Javy gave up four straight singles and then hung a slider to Monroe, which resulted in a grand slam.

-Maybe Oz should take out Javy as soon as he gets out of the fifth, to minimize the chance of him blowing up.

-Outside of the sixth, the Tigers did nothing offensively. Excluding the sixth, they only had 2 hits. Javy was cruising and the bullpen shut down the Tigers; it was that damn blowup inning that bit us in the ass.

''The one thing he does not do is get out of the big innings,'' Guillen
said. ''He was cruising along, and then he loses his momentum. When you do that
against that ballclub, you get hammered.''
-We didn't scrape together much offensively either. Crede and Uribe hit
solo shots and that was about it.

-Two hit streaks ended today. Thome's 10 game and Paulie's 15 game streak ended.

-Big Ups of the Day to the 'pen for consistently pitching well. The bullpen was once our biggest liability, but now almost seems to be one of our strengths.

Sox Record: 58-35
