JV SOX FALL TO MARINERS
Last night the Sox were without David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, and Jacoby Ellsbury. Not surprisingly, they didn't manage to score. Although, they did get 7 hits and work 3 walks, but they couldn't get that big hit.
Not that it mattered. Colon had his first ugly start of the season, going 5 innings, allowing 6 runs, 3 earned runs (although the unearned runs came after his own errors. I hate that rule), 8 hits, and a walk. The 2 runs David Aardsma allowed in the 7th erased any doubt as to which team would win.
But this is what we're going to get from Colon. A couple of good starts, a couple of bad starts. The lack of offense intensifies the harshness of this loss. But considering the absences in the lineup, it shouldn't be too much cause for concern.
