Baseball Before Bedtime: Dead Flowers

| | Comments (1)

Here's what happened in baseball yesterday while you were making bets on kentucky derby day.:

Red Sox 2, Reds 1: Clay Buchholz continued to make John Smoltz and Brad Penny look like old farts, throwing six solid innings and lowering his ERA this spring to a microscopic 0.46. Someone named Aaron Reza hit a two-run dubble off Bill Bray to win the game in the ninth.

Tigers 10, Mets 6: Remember yesterday when Kris promised he would switch his antipathy from Mets fans to Cardinals fans for 2009? Well that only holds true for him. I still want to take every opportunity to tease the Mets faithful. It's just so easy! Oliver Perez walked six hitters and allowed six runs in just over three innings of work. See?

Rangers 8, Diamondbacks 5: I hope little Ronny Warshington isn't thinking about taking any playing time away from Chris Davis. With Andruw Jones rumours floating all around, Davis did his best to prove that he should be the every day first baseman, cracking a tiebreaking seventh inning tetra tot and later saving a small English bulldog from running into traffic outside Surprise Stadium.

Indians 8, Padres 4: Carl Pavano became the first Indians pitcher to go six innings this spring while Andy Marte hit a two-run dinger to lead Cleveland to a tidy win. Not only was Pavano durable yesterday, he was good enough for manager Eric Wedge to dub him the third starter once the season starts. Good luck with that, Wedgie.

How long is six innings in Pavano years?
