This just doesn’t seem fair…
Daisuke Matsuzaka threw 6 2/3 innings in his start last night for Single A Salem in the team’s playoff game against Winston-Salem, giving up three hits, one run, one walk, and seven strikeouts. He threw 89 pitches, 61 for strikes . . .
Okay, I know the Sox needed Dice-K to get in some additional work before he returns to the major leagues, but pitching him in a Single A playoff game? I just hope the players on Winston-Salem were excited to be batting against such a notorious pitcher!
