Welcome back to the Desk, Kendria has joined me from Weaver’s Sports Center.Kendria has joined me at Guaranteed Rate Field.
I am well Kendria thanks for asking, its been awhile since we have gotten to catch up. Hope your well also? You ask me about the loss of Jose Quintana and it’s effect on the rotation and I think it has, lost more stability in the rotation. Now with the loss of David Robertson, Who do you think can fill the role of closer? To answer our closing problem, Nate Jones is out for the season after having elbow surgery to reposition a nerve in his elbow.
In response to your uniform question, the boys always wear the 1980’s throwbacks on Sunday during the season.
Today’s game has Carlos Rodon in the office facing off against Josh Tomlin for the Indians.
It would be a pitchers duel until the top of the 3rd when Lindor for Cleveland hit a solo shot for a 1 to 0 Indians.
Bottom of 6th sees Leury Garcia of the Law Firm, Garcia, Garcia and Garcia belt a solo shot of his own over the right center fence to tie the game at 1 all.
Top of the 8th would see Jake Petricka get the office keys from Carlos. What a confidence building outing for him. Tyler Clippard took care of shutting down the Indians in the top of the 9th inning.
With Jose Abreu already on the pond with a double, Matt Davidson steps to the plate and belts his 21st home run of the season for a 3 to 1 Sox win , stopping the Indians winning streak.
Pack your travel bag as we head north for a series with the Blue Jays.
**Melky has been traded to Kansas City for Prospects and possible cash amount.
Sox are 16.5 games out. Let’s just enjoy the rest of the season.
