5-10-08: Sox 8 - Mariners 4

May 10, 2008 - Seattle, Washington

The Sox lit up Washburn for seven runs. I might be jinxing it, but it looks like the offense in back. Seven runs on eleven hits and four walks is not too shabby. Javier Vazquez didn't have a great outing, but it was effective enough.

If Brian Anderson ever gets traded, I'll bet it will be to Seattle. He hit his first home runs of the season tonight in Seattle with two on. Out of all eleven career homers that Brian has, seven came at U.S. Cellular Field and the rest came at Safeco Field in Seattle. That's a very strange statistic.

The good:
Quentin, Swisher and Crede all had multi-hit games tonight.

Brian Anderson's first home run for 2008.

The bad:
Another stolen base by Ichiro.

Everyone but Nick Swisher scored.

The ugly:
Joe Crede getting thrown out trying to extend a single into a double.

Jim Thome getting a forced day off.

Are the Sox back with the bats? It sure looks that way. I hope this trend lasts awhile. It was getting ridiculous watching the Sox bat themselves out of innings. There can always be improvement, but this is a great start.
