Gopher Balls in the Gopher State

Who had the better pitcher sad face, Phil Hughes or Rick Porcello?

Dustin Pedroia got to see Hughes’s face twice, in the third and fifth innings. Both times Pedroia drove in two runs, but the second baseman was the only Red Sox player with RBIs in this contest.

Porcello gave up the gopher ball twice as well. In the fourth inning Aaron Hicks clouted his first homer of the season. Eddie Rosario powered his second four-bagger in the sixth inning.

There were some moves that may help the Red Sox get on track. Daniel Nava was placed on the disabled list with an injured thumb. Heath Hembree was returned to Pawtucket and Jeff Bianchi was designated for assignment. Top prospect Eduardo Rodriguez was called up and will start against the Rangers tonight. Bolstering the bullpen and outfield respectively were call-ups Robbie Ross and Carlos Peguero.
