Nick Green better than Penny?

In this game, Nick Green was the best pitcher period. Much better than Red Sox starter Junichi Tazawa (who gave up 9 runs) and better than White Sox pitcher John Danks (who gave up 2 runs), better than fellow Red Sox pitcher Ramon Ramirez , who gave up 3 hits and no runs. So how much better can you be than giving up just 3 hits and no runs? by giving up no hits and that is what Nick Green did.

With the Red Sox trailing 9-2 in the 8th inning Terry Francona decided not to waste any of his real pitchers instead opting for his hard throwing back-up shortstop Nick Green, and Green proved Francona a genius by not giving up a hit in 2 innings. Now Green did walk 3 batters but no hits and no runs throwing 90 miles per hour. He threw mostly fastballs with a slider or 2 mixed in here and there.

On this night Nick Green was the most hitless pitcher the Red Sox had and on a night the Red Sox got blasted 9-5, Nick Green was the highlight of the night, despite J D Drew’s 2 home runs (and my son catching a foul ball).
