FINAL: Red Sox 9 Phillies 3
Boy don’t I look like a dick right now. I spent most of the day Monday bitching about how much Alfredo Aceves sucked and the dude came out and only allows one run in six innings.
It was against the Phillies, who suck this year, so you have to take it with a grain of salt. Im convinced that if Clay Buchholz was pitching, he would have thrown a no-hitter. But Aceves did only give up one run over six innings, so the dude does deserve a a nice golf clap.
Anyway, the Red Sox scored 6 runs in the first three innings and knocked Phillies starter Tyler Cloyd out of the game before the dude could finish the third inning. Mike Napoli and Dustin Pedroia each homered in the first inning. Cloyd ended up giving up 6 earned runs in 2.1 innings of work. Sucks to be him.
The Red Sox have now won four straight and are all alone on top of the AL East. Pissa.
