- Pedroia was the only player to have an even half way decent game offensively. He went 3-7. Tampa as a team went 3-50. That’s a batting average of .060.
- The Sox left 17 men on base, which is pretty amazing for a game in which they only got 5 hits. Every starter walked at least once (12 total) accept for Jacoby and Varitek, who were a combined 0-14.
- Tampa used 9 pitchers and threw 270 total pitches, but somehow in extra innings managed to bring in 6 guys in a row from the bullpen that didn’t even give up a single hit.
I guess a 16 inning game that ends 1-0 is fairly ridiculous in itself. Crawford comes back for the Sox tonight, loooong overdue.
