Here at Pink Hat Sports, we know that even the most die-hard fans have lives outside of sports. No one can see every game.
So if you missed last night’s Red Sox game, here’s what you’ll want to know before you hit the water cooler today.
The Game: Oakland A’s v. Boston Red Sox
The Score: Red Sox: 2, A’s: 4
The Recap: Daniel Bard started for the Sox, and pitched well for the first 5 innings, giving up only 4 hits and 1 run. His pitching fell apart in the 6th inning though, when the A’s scored 3 more runs. The Sox tried to rally for a comeback, but just couldn’t get it done.
Beyond the Score: We saw two Red Sox players have great debuts tonight. Will Middlebrooks started at 3rd base, and got his first Major League hit tonight. Clayton Mortenson made his first appearance at Fenway as a relief pitcher, and did a stellar job from the mound. He struck out 6 batters in 3 innings. As Dan Duquette, Jr notes perhaps it’s “Beginner’s Luck“. However, the Sox bullpen could use all the luck it can find right now!
