Sonnanstine in control

D-Rays starter Andy Sonnanstine — he of the 1-8 record and 6.35 ERA heading into this afternoon’s affair — is looking like a stud thus far, allowing just one hit and no runs through four. His only baserunner came in the second when Mike Lowell ripped a double off the top of the Wall, just hours after Lowell’s shot to Landsdowne St. that tied the game last night.

Meanwhile, Dice-K has allowed five runs through four, the most runs he’s allowed since giving up six at Detroit on July 8, and it’s 5-0 Tampa.

For the scoreboard watchers among you — whose numbers, no doubt, have grown in the past couple of weeks — the Yankees trail Baltimore 3-0 in the fourth, after a two-run single by Tike Redman.
