That’s all, folks.
The Red Sox have been swept in their three-game set here in Seattle, with the final loss coming in 11 innings when Joel Pineiro allowed a double to Jose Lopez that scored Ichiro Suzuki from first base for the 2-1 score.
The Sox have a day off tomorrow to rest and recharge from their long road trip through Atlanta, San Diego, and Seattle, before facing the Rangers at home for four games starting on Friday.
Terry Francona said, after the game, that Pineiro was fine to go, despite the injured ankle that he sustained on Monday. Had he not been, the manager said he would not have been allowed to pitch. Pineiro said there was still pain in the ankle when he went out to the mound, but that it wasn’t a factor.
Thanks for all the questions, guys. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to answer more of them. We’ll be back on the blog in force from Boston.
Until then, don’t panic too much. (Yes, I know you, Boston fans…)
