Well all the good that David Ortiz and the Red Sox accomplished last night seems like ages ago after yesterday’s 4-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.
The Boston offense only managed to churn out three hits against Bud Norris and Tommy Hunter, so I guess that means we are back to square one. It is beginning to get frustrating to watch some of the at-bats the club is putting together and you have to feel for some of the starting pitchers.
Jake Peavy tossed seven innings, allowing four earned runs and competing just like he does every time he takes the hill. Though there have obviously been poor starts by the starting rotation, they have been pretty solid for the most part and the offense continues to do little to offer them any support.
Baltimore scored all four of their runs on homers including two solo-shot and a two-run blast. I was hoping to see someone throw at Manny Machado just to get a rise out of him, but a boy can only dream. It would have been great to see, especially considering how testy the Sox were just as recently as their Tampa series (which seems like ages ago).
Brandon Workman will get the start today against the O’s against Chris Tillman. Tillman has not pitched well so far this season, and even as poorly as the Sox have hit this year, they should be licking their chops at the chance to go against a guy giving up a baserunner and a half per inning in 2014.
