Not particularly, no. But I do appreciate your concern.
Sox bats no-show as the Braves gives Boston a solid 4-1 beating.
Braves starter Jair Jurrjens was the story tonight. If you haven't been following him, he's been bad. So bad, in fact, that the Braves threw Jair and his 9+ ERA down to the minors at the end of April to try to figure it out. Except, instead of doing that, he was nearly as bad in AAA, rocking a 5.27 ERA through 9 starts. For whatever reason, the Braves decided to give him another run in the majors. And, well, apparently the remedy for his bad pitching is the Sox even-worse offense.
Sox batters got 3 hits against Jurrjens - 1 in the first (Gonzalez single), none through innings 2-7, then 2 in the 8th. The second and third hits were doubles by Middlebrooks and Nava (with Nava's driving Middlebrooks home). That was the only offense for the Sox all night as Durbin and Kimbrel made easy work of the final 4 outs. OK, Pedroia gave Durbin a bit of a battle to end the 8th before grounding out to short, but Kimbrel breezed through the 9th.
Lester had himself another 2012 Lester performance. He lasted 7 innings but surrendered 10 hits along the way, miraculously holding the Braves to just 3 earned runs. This game, like far too many lately, ranked pretty low on the fun scale.
To quote Forrest Gump, that's all I have to say about that.
