5-21-08: Indians 2 - Sox 7

May 21, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

Jermaine is on fire!

A five run sixth inning is all the offense that the Sox needed today. Jermaine Dye added two home runs to the mix. Javier Vazquez pitched another solid effort as the Sox won seven in a row. Take a moment for that to sink in. Seven in a row.

Every member seemed to contribute to this win. Even Alexei Ramirez had an RBI, despite the lack of hits. The bullpen provided solid relief and no major problems to speak of. Everyone was doing their part.

The good:
Jermaine Dye was 2 for 2 with 2 homers, a walk and a hit by pitch.

Javier Vazquez pitched solid enough for the win.

The bad:
Six men left on base.

2 hits given up by Matt Thornton.

The ugly:
Alexei Ramirez went 0 for 3.

Joe Crede left two runners in scoring position with two out.

Another day, another win. At least that's what it's starting to look like. I know it can't last, but it's nice to see. The team is playing as a whole and not as a bunch of individuals.
