Ubaldo Jimenez Not
There's just something about Interleague Play that kicks the Sox into gear. This year, they have been 10-2 against their National League opponents. Last night, their six-game winning streak came to an end against the Colorado Rockies in Denver.
Jhoulys Chacin started for the Rockies. He had lost 6 of his last 7 decisions, but against the Red Sox, looked as good as anybody out there. He pitched 7 innings giving up a hit and striking out seven. Mike Cameron drove in Adrian Beltre in the ninth inning for the Sox only run of the game.
Having an off night is one thing, but when you're going to be facing the 13-1 Ubaldo Jimenez the next night, that could be an issue. The Sox have not lost a series since the 14-16th of May.
