When I see the name of Andrew Miller penciled in as starting pitcher, I think it's probably going to be one of those games where he'll be gone early and the bullpen gets a workout.
Not so last night, as Miller pitched very well, but was gone by the sixth. He allowed just one Kansas City run. Alfredo Aceves continues to be a godsend, going 3 2/3 innings, allowing just a walk and a hit in getting the save as the Sox continues their winning ways, 7-1.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a three run shot, and Adrian Gonzalez busted out of the funk he was in, getting three hits while losing his goatee. (Coincidence?)
Sox had 13 hits, and the struggles of earlier this week seem in the rearview mirror. And congratulations to Ryan Lavarnway, who got his first MLB hit in the fifth inning, a single.
Tonight, Tim Wakefield once again gives it another go in trying to get his 200th career win. It has to happen some day, so why not tonight?
