Man the Twins have had their chances their last 2 games.Berrios looked downright amazing.The Red Sox record won't show it, but that is a star studded lineup that Jose toyed with all night.The way he blew Betts away with that 95 MPH heater in the 8th...... !!!He looks like a true ace out there.I really think what Jake has doing is overshadowing Berrios, but he is putting together a damn fine season.
I have to give my hat off to Porcello as well.I have never thought extremely high of him, but he was on point last night.He rarely ever got behind, he rarely ever left anything over the heart of the plate and frustrated our guys all night.One of the only mistakes he did make, Cron crushed 410 feet and missed tying the game by mere feet, that goes over the fence, the whole outcome changes.If anyone should watch him pitch, it should be Kyle Gibson.
I'd like to rag on Parker, but my real question is why wasn't it May or Duffy in that situation?You want to keep the game close and you are facing the heart of the Boston order.....get someone who can strike someone out.Parker did give up the two doubles, but it was two all star caliber players....he just isn't who I would have up there.
I think the bats are pressing a little bit.Some pretty huge swings early on the count on not great pitches.I think that tends to happen when the team slumps a little bit.It was bound to happen, let's just hope they relax a little and break out of the funk soon.
