This tweet by Pete Abraham about sums it up.
If you've ever watched Josh Reddick, you know he is dying to swing at anything in the same zip code. So of course Dice-K throws him a middle/middle fastball on the first pitch. Reddick murdered it.
Reddick (pictured) has 19 homers this year, so I guess a lot of people are throwing to that ZIP code.
Later in the same inning, the second, this happened:
Another former Red Sox outfielder, Brandon Moss, was next. Matsuzaka threw him the same pitch he did to Reddick, only at 89 m.p.h. It was driven over the scoreboard in right field, giving Oakland a 4-1 lead.The second was the last inning for Dice K, and now he may be headed to the disabled list, according to Abraham and other sources.
Will Middlebrooks was out of the lineup last night with a strained hmstring, and may soon be added to the DL as well. Jim Corrigan 7/03/2012 06:45:00 AM Tweet
