5-13-08: Sox 0 - Angels 2

May 13, 2008 - Anaheim, California

"Okay, Weaver, listen carefully. You can hold on to your red snapper... or you can go for what's in the box that Hiro-San is bringing down the aisle right now! What's it gonna be?"

If Jered Weaver went for the box, he would have been left with nothing. He held onto the red snapper and the Sox took the box. In fact, the Sox got so much of nothing, that only one player made it to second base. This was a pitching battle and the Angels held on to win it.

Carlos Quentin almost got the nod for his double, but I went with John Danks. He kept the Sox in the game, waiting for the rally that never happened. In the land of the Rally Monkey, the opponent rarely does the rallying.

The good:
John Danks and the bullpen kept the Sox close throughout the game.

Carlos Quentin had a double.

The bad:
4 men left on base.

3 stolen bases off of Danks and Pierzynski.

The ugly:
Only three hits!

Only two walks.

With only four different men reaching base, it's hard to score. The Sox need to rebound from this game and step up the offense once again. It's just one game, so as Ed Farmer would say, get off the ledge.
