I find myself rooting for the Red Sox to break their 9-game skid today, simply because the odds of them losing 14 in a row are slim. Hate to think they’ll snap out of it tomorrow in Fenway South.
The Braves need a win themselves after yesterday’s lackluster effort. The line-up:
Heyward rf, BUpton cf, Freeman 1b, JUpton lf, Gattis c, Johnson 3b, Simmons ss, Pastornicky 2b, Teheran p
Shocking stat: B.J. has struck out just once on the home stand, with 5 walks, 6 hits and a .984 OPS.
