5-17-08: Sox 3 - Giants 1

May 17, 2008 - San Francisco, California

Buehrle's a hit!

This is the type of game Mark Buehrle needed to get back on track. He put in a decent pitching performance and ripped a nice hit on top of that.

Tony Hall and Jermaine Dye went 3 for 5 in the game. The Sox manages 12 hits, but only crossed the plate 3 times. They need to get those missing key hits that will break the game wide open.

The good:
Mark Buehrle gets a nice hit.

Toby Hall is on fire at the plate.

The bad:
Nick Swisher went 0 for 3.

Jermaine Dye left 5 runners on base.

The ugly:
14 left on base!

Barry Zito drops to 0-8.

The Sox are getting slightly better. Hopefully, this winning is not just a San Francisco thing and the Sox can translate this to other teams. One thing that I'm left pondering after this game... what happened to Barry Zito?
