Too much chicken during the suspension?
Following his abbreviated suspension, everybody’s favorite Texas Ranger, Kenny Rogers was back on the mound last night against the Sox. Maybe he should have sat out a few more games. If you watched the game, you certainly saw the harsh reception Rogers got as he walked out to the mound.
After pitching fairly well in the first four innings, Manny reminded him what it’s like to pitch against the #1 RBI guy in baseball by batting in his 105, 106, and 107th runs on his 32nd home run of the season. After a bit of nervousness in the top of the 8th with Texas threatening against the Sox bullpen, the Red Sox took over in the bottom half of the inning to win their 11th home game in a row.
I’ve been a Sox fan since 1999, and this has been the first year I have been in the city to really follow the team. It has been an exciting summer so far, and I’m really growing to love the team. I’ll be looking forward to the big series this weekend against the White Sox.
