Shuck and Alexei Ramirez added a pair of hits apiece. Shuck and Micah Johnson each drove in a run.

Jeff Samardzija on his first season with the Sox, despite the slow start.

“These guys are great. The staff is awesome. It’s great here. I love the team. I love the feel of being here and how we go about every game.”

Fire the manager.

So much for an exciting season ..yes it’s early but…Ventura is not the coach for this team ..he needs to still learn when to have someone to sacrifice bunt when it is applicable ..common sense. He is dragging the team down. Boring …I love baseball I think I’ll watch other MLB teams…not to lose my interest in baseball.. The Soxs are too predictable n boring. To think I almost brought the pick 14 season pass…I don’t think so…. They picked up where they left off last season. Yes I’m a Soxs Fan … but really ..they got the talent..where is it ???.Ventura ..AKA Lovie Smith. Yawn!!! Oh yeah… Cooper….pitching coach….enough said.
