Quote of the Day
Robin on the Sox’ road trip and the impact of John Danks‘ complete-game shutout on Sunday:
“These are some tough teams on this road trip, and we’re still keeping our heads up and getting after it. It’s nice, especially with the way the bullpen has been the last four or five days, to be able to get nine innings out of your starter.”
