That’s why it’s called a ‘B’ game

The Sox-Twins “B” game at Hammond Stadium ended in a 0-0 tie. The Red Sox did not bat in the eighth and ninth innings because the Twins ran out of pitchers.

Alex Ochoa continued to impress with two hits. After Jon Lester’s perfect one inning, Kason Gabbard pitched two scoreless innings; Devern Hansack struck out four in two innings in an impressive outing; Rule 5 pick Nick DeBarr pitched twice. His first stint was one inning in the sixth and after Kyle Jackson pitched a scoreless seventh, DeBarr pitched two more scoreless innings.

How can he do that? It’s a spring training “B” game. That’s why.

The 18-20 scouts on hand watched Sidney Pinson pitch two scoreless innings for the Twins, facing seven batters and striking out two.
