Let's start with the Good:
- Jose Abreu hit his 28th Home Run of the year.
- Not sure where this power surge is coming from, but Conor Gillaspie hit his 3rd Home Run of the season and 2nd in consecutive days.
- Chris Sale was his awesome self: 7 2/3 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 6 K's, 0 BB.
- More splendid base running by Alejandro De Aza. Here is video of him getting thrown out at home. It seemed like he hesitated rounding third, as the NESN team commented that he almost collided with third base coach Joe McEwing.
- Dayan Viciedo went 0-4 with 3 K's. The one time he didn't strike out he hit a hard grounder through the 5 hole on Mike Napoli. The error allowed Gillaspie to score, but Christian Vazquez threw out Viciedo at 2nd.
- Gordon Beckham went 0-4, and is 18 for 104 in the last 30 days (.173 BA). All-Star Alexei Ramirez was also 0-4 and is cooling off too, as he is 22 for 107 in the last 30 days (.206 BA).
