While most of Boston was watching the Bruins play a fantastic game, the Red Sox were doing quite the opposite last night. The Red Sox were being no hit through 6 innings before David Ortiz ended that with a single into center field, but the team was still not able to score any runs. The team having lost the first 2 games of the series will be trying to get at least 1 win out of their trip to Chicago tonight when Clay Buchholz takes the mound. Here are the stars of last nights game:
Star 3: Jessie Crain
Crain may have pitched only .2 innings last night but they were the 2 most important outs of the entire game. He entered the game with the bases loaded and 1 out in the 7th inning. He then proceeded to strike out Will Middlebrooks and then Stephen Drew on a total of 12 pitches.
Star 2: Jeff Keppinger
Keppinger provided the offense for the White Sox last night with a 2 run home run in the 5th inning. It was his only hit of the game in 3 at bats and was his first home run of the season.
Star 1: Jose Quintana
Quintana was amazing last night for 6 innings before the wheels started to fall off. While he did improve to 3-1 on the season and throw 6 innings of no hit ball he did have trouble in the 7th inning. He recored one out and then loaded the bases before being relieved. He gave up 3 hits on the night, struck out 5 and walked 2 batters. He allowed no runs.
Well the Red Sox are not going to win ever series they play this year but a win tonight would be nice. What do the Red Sox need to do to pull off a win tonight? Leave your answer in the comments below or tell me on twitter @ryanthahawaiian.
