2-1 Red Sox. Damn, Syracuse tried really hard: After starter Jeff Mandel left the game after five innings, manager Trent Jewett used a combination of five relievers to finish things off.
Josh Beckett got the start for Pawtucket in rehab. Beckett is a really good pitcher, but a questionable human being. And probably a Republican. And I'm pretty sure his lips move when he reads. I would love to convince him to use crystal meth and watch him submerge into a full-blown addiction!
Except he's someone's beloved son and that is really wrong. I'm sorry, Mrs. Beckett.
Beckett... screw that, go read about it everywhere else. Jason Botts homered off him, so that must have been awesome.
Other than that, he was ably backed by Hill, Bowden, Maxwell, and Cabrera.
A rash of singles led to Pawtucket's two runs in the first. There was no further scoring by the Red Sox for the remainder of the game.
shaking like a tremelo:
1. Ryan Kalish went 2-3 with a walk and a double. It is so great to have him in Pawtucket. I am hoping he doesn't get elevated to Chris Carter status, because that would be revolting.
2. Aaron Bates went 0-4 with 2 K's.
3. Carlos Maldonado! Please enjoy his recent interview with Mike Couzens.
That's all I got. I'm not taking a break like the rest of you maggots. So see you tomorrow, then?
