Game thoughts!

Fourteen freaking men left on base. A game of absolute frustration as inning after inning, nine innings in all the Sox left at least one man on base. The left on base stats almost look like a binary code. 122121212. The game was just gnashing of the teeth.

Of course the biggest frustration was having Tek end the third with two on base, the fifth with two left on base, the seventh with two left on base and the ninth with two left on base. That was eight men left on base to end four different innings. Grinding of the teeth.

It also didn't help to have Ortiz thrown out at home for the second out of the fifth inning on a Mike Lowell single to center. It should have been first and third with only one out, instead it was a man on second with two outs. Just grinding of the teeth.

Lugo watch - 1 for 4 - up to .242

Coco watch - 1 for 4 - down to .272

Drew watch - 2 for 4 - up to .264

♊ - all else fails get a bigger hammer.
