James Shields Returns for Game 2
Fingers crossed for James that he can have a better outing than last time. Brett Lawrie is on his way to the Birmingham Barons for his rehab assignment, Miguel Gonzalez on the 15 day D.L for the groin strain.
Adam Eaton walked to open the Sox batting, tyler Saladino with a bunt to move him to 2nd, Jose Abreu with an RBI double, Sox lead 1 to 0
Tim Anderson with a lead off double, Dioner Navarro with a double gets Timmy home for a 2 to 0 Sox lead, Adam with a walk, Tyler with a 2 run double for a 4 to 0 lead,
Stanton with a home run for a 4 to 1 ball game, he barely swung at that and it was gone. 12 pitches for James through 1 and 2/3 inning. If Adam had been in right he would have had it.
Bottom of 3rd and James with a 21 ball pitch count. 3 Run homer by the Marlins have tied the game, Marlins take the lead 5 to 4, Timmy, you got to get the tag on the hand not the chest.
Jason Coast goes “Yard” for his 1st for his career, it’s a 5 all ball game,
Bases loaded and James is done, leaving the keys for Matt Albers, Marlins with a pair for a 7 to 5 lead. Nice way to hit the batter Matt
Timmy at 3rd and Dioner at 1st and only 1 out, Carlos Sanchez just walked to fill the pond, Way to go Timmy, he’s safe but was called out, upon review, he was called safe. Sox – 6 and Marlins – 7
Dan Jennings got the keys from Matt Albers, who flipped them to Chris Beck.
Top of 7th and Todd Frazier finally with a hit
Jason Coast with a single to open the 8th inning, Jason to second on the wild pitch, pitch hit RBI double for Justin Morneau and this game is tied at 7 all, Runners at 2nd and 3rd,on a dropped 3rd strike, Melky safe at 1st and Dioner home for an 8 to 7 Sox lead on a strikeout and wild pitch.
Nasty Nate Jones in with the keys, shutting the inning down. Timmy with a walk to 1st, Jason hit by the pitch, nice double steal(Coats first steal), J.B Shuck at the plate
It’s up to David Robertson to lock up the office, Adam into right and J.B to center. Robbie with the lights out (1 out) office door shut for 2 outs,
This game is ova, Robbie with the help of Adam and Timmy lock the office for an 8 to 7 win
Sox win the series and now hoping for a sweep tomorrow with Chris Sale in the office
