Dice-K Back To His Old Self
Eric Patterson hits 2 home runs, they chased Matt Garza, and Terry Francona kept Daisuke Matsuzaka in for four batters too many.
Another four walks, 30 pitches in the first inning, and more jams than a Phish concert. The Red Sox had a 5-1 lead going into the 5th inning...then it all fell down. Again, Dice-K just let the lead slip away.
It's just gotten to be too much. I personally was pumped when Dice-K had that stretch of about 3 starts when he looked like he was worth some of the ridiculous cash we paid him, but now, its just so easy to go back to getting that "who's pitching to-...oh, crap."
The Sox are 2 games back, and a half game back of the Rays going into battle tonight. Felix Doubront will look to notch another victory against Jeff Niemann.
