4-20-08: Sox 6 - Rays 0

April 20, 2008 - Tampa Bay, Florida

The sultans of swing!

John Danks looks like the real thing. Let's see how he'll hold up during the season. The rookie pitchers in the rotation seem to be doing better than the veterans. I never would have thought that.

Jim Thome seems to be out of his funk. He went 4 for 5 with 3 RBI and another home run. Most of the hitters contributed to the win. Brian Anderson is not helping his cause by sitting on the bench. He's getting rusty and it's showing. I know it's not his decision to play, but he needs regular at-bats to stay consistent.

The good:
Jim Thome's home run.

Jermaine Dye's first triple in a long time.

The bad:
Jermaine Dye's 3 strikeouts.

7 left on base.

The ugly:
Brain Anderson's 0 for 4 day at the plate.

Joe Crede was also 0 for 4.

There wasn't much that was bad about this game. It's almost a complete reverse of yesterday's affair. It's nice to see the Sox bounce back from a tough game. Let's see if they can continue this type of play.
