Play(s) of the Day
Outstanding pitching and an offense that scored seven runs in the first three innings highlighted our 8-1 victory last night and ended the 10-game losing streak…Jose Quintana got credit for his sixth win of the season with an impressive 6.2 innings, allowing just one run and eight scattered hits along with five strikeouts…Alexei Ramirez and Alex Rios led the way offensively. Ramirez went 4-5 with two RBI and a run scored and Rios was 2-4 with four RBI, a walk and a run scored.
Here’s Alexei’s run-scoring double in the sixth inning that gave the Sox an 8-0 lead.
Quote of the Day
Robin on last night’s win:
“It starts with pitching and “Q’ was great…offensively it was just one of those (games) that just clicked. You get some balls that fall in and I can’t remember too many of the ones that just fall into the outfield for us, especially with guys on. So, it’s one of those that relieves a lot of the psyche or whatever of not knocking guys in. Guys are swinging, they’re taking ball four, it was just a good night offensively.”
