BOS   7  10  0
TEX   3  5   0

W - Gabbard (2-0)
L - McCarthy (4-5)
THE STARTER:
Not too shabby by Kason Gabbard last night. He went 5.2 innings and gave up 3 runs, 4 walks and struck out 3. Not terrific numbers, but he kept the Sox in the ball game. His three runs were a dinger by Brad Wilkerson. Bad luck for him, but he was still able to earn the win.

THE 'PEN:

Mike Timlin, Javier Lopez, Kyle Snyder and Hideki Okajima worked a combined for 3.1 innings, 2 hits, one struck out and allowed no runs. A great outing by our solid bullpen.

THE LINEUP:

Here's a surprise: Eric Hinske was the power bat in the Sox lineup yesterday. He started at first and went 2-for-4 with one run and 3 RBI. The 3 RBI came on a bases-clearing triple in the 5th. Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-2 with two walks, two runs, and his first major league stolen base. Manny Ramirez and Jason Varitek also had two hits.

THE FIELD:

No errors. Yay.


WINNER: Let's go with two for last night: Hinske and Ellsbury. Both deserve it.


WINNER: Nobody was Mendoza-bad last night, not even Julio Lugo who started and walked twice.
