Cy Young winners sigh against the Sox


Here’s a cool stat I swiped from the Red Sox media notes:

The Sox have faced four Cy Young Award winners this season — CC Sabathia three times, Zack Greinke twice, Roy Halladay once and Tim Lincecum once. The Sox are 6-1 in those games.

The Cy Young winners are 0-4 with a 6.57 ERA.

Then there is this:

Red Sox pitchers finished 5 of 18 (.278) in interleague road games with two RBIs, two walks, five sacrifices and only five strikeouts.

The Sox were 13-5 against the National League overall, hitting .292 and averaging just over six runs a game.

That’s it for today from AT&T Park. I’m catching a red-eye flight home tonight and plan to catch some sleep after watching Friday Night Lights.

We’ll have a few posts tomorrow. Thanks to everybody for reading his weekend and was a lot of fun to meet so many Sox fans out here.
