Overall I can’t be mad at any of the Sox players after this win. The offense did its job (though it would’ve been nice to score a baserunner or two late in the game, and except for a few incidents, Floyd looked pretty dominant. While I didn’t like the way Jenks was used yesterday, I have no problem with brining him late in the 8th to get a big out with the game on the line. And even though I wanted to see Getz tonight, Nix still had a good game. It seems like he is always getting on base, yet his average is only in the low .200’s. It’d be interesting to see what he’d do playing everyday.
In the end, nice win, and it must be a real mental boost for the Sox to hold on to this one.
