JD not wearing his pink shirt, but nails a solo dinger. Coincidence?

Chavis with a freak RBI. Does that count as a hit if they score it as an error?

Passed ball brings in another run. Now 3-1.

Chavis crushed a 120-foot pop up that the 2nd baseman slipped and it fell for a single.  2-1 Sox .

Chavis finally with a hard hit 2b drives in 2.
In the last 16 games, Raffy has been a total hit machine raising his BA 70points to .333 while playing much better defense also.

Hector did a nice job today. 5 innings. 2 runs. Only 63 pitches. Sox up 6-2 after 5 innings with Walden coming in to pitch the 6th.

It's getting close to DFA Pearce. Even Brentz can at least hit 190-210.

Bases juiced, no outs. Ok, one out now, but a run in.

Pearce with a GIDP to end the inning. Not the Pearce we saw last season.

Have to love the way the Sox are playing these days!
THESE are the Sox that played World Series winning games last year!

YAHOOO

Keep it going.

Sox 9 - Mariners 2
Going to the bottom of the 8th inning.

AND the Sox beat the Mariners 11 - 2.
SWEET SWEEP!

Sox have gone 9 - 2 in the month of May!
LOVE the scoring on two outs in an inning.
5 wins in a row!

Devers has had 3 three hit games in a row.

Offense is finding its stride.

YAHOOOO!

Thanks for the Mother's Day gift Sox!

Hector Velazquez with the win with 5 good innings. Good pitching & good hitting. Some help from the Mariners. Great series for the Sox. On to Tuesday.

Sox are certainly finding their stroke.  Even Bradley and Leon contributed this series, and Chavis showing sme positive signs today.

Has anybody heard about a spat brewing between Porcello and Vazquez?

In the last 19 days, the Sox went from -43 to plus 27 in RDiff. Pretty damn good playing.

Nothing in writing, only anecdotal and also coming from some espn trolls. Leon caught Rick yesterday, and I don't know who normally catches him.  Leon also caught Rick in Chicago, but Vaz replaced Sandy in that game I think when Rick was taken out.  I hope no more drama, at least we only have two catchers now!

The stats show Leon gives our starters a better era than Vaz, Porce about 3/4 pts lower, except for ERod, about even.  Sale and Price have an era about twice as high with Vaz catching.

Purcello apparently said last year that he prefers pitching to Leon.  It is fairly well known that Leon was the preferred choice of a number of Red Sox starters but that doesn't necessarily mean that there is any bad feeling between Purcello and Vazquez.   The truth is Leon is the better "receiver" behind the plate although if you recall it was Leon who bumped into Purcello early in yesterday's game causing Purcello to be charged an error on that pop up in front of the mound which was clearly Leon's fault.

Speaking of making errors as bad as I thought the White Sox were defensively, this Seattle team takes defensive lapses to a whole other level.  I haven't such poor infield play since the days of Rod Kanehl and Charlie Neal of the 62 Mets who made 60 errors between the two of them.

Another season series redeemed.  The Sox are rolling and in no small part due to Devers and now Chavis too.  They are 11-2 in the last 13, which is what we had said they needed.  They are clearly the team playing the best right now.  Now a day off, a couple with Colorado and then a big Houston series after some more rest.  Too many days off just as they get hot!

I still insist our team is not out of the woods yet but the scene is getting more encouraging by the day.  At the season's outset we got beaten three of four up in Seattle and three of four in Oakland.  Those two bummer series were redeemed when those two clubs came to Fenway Park and we ran the tables on both of them, and frankly speaking, I expect the same to be done to the D'Backs when they come to our abode.  In the meantime we are only three games out and need to keep turning out the wins-----no fallback because we cannot afford to.  We got ourselves in the mess with some unprepared and shoddy play and now that we are turning the tables on our opponents we have to keep things going.....like this two game series with Colorado.  A split is failure, two wins is a success and that it what we must keep in mind until we are right up with the Rays and Yankees and see it as a three team race for the AL East Title this season.

I agree, need to keep rolling.  Plus the Astros come to town this weekend.
