    Great pitching and timely hitting. Hope Gio is all right, though.

    "Hamstring tightness" is what they're saying. Will be re-evaluated tomorrow. Cross our fingers and hope for some good news.

      Cleveland pounded the Royals, so the magic number is now:

      There were lots of 22's to choose from (could have gone with Ed Farmer or Darrin Jackson or Jose Valentin or even The Pope Donn Pall, but how do you not pick Scotty Pods?

          Bullpen did a fantastic job. Nobody threw too many pitches so everyone should be ready to go tomorrow and will have an off day to rest up.

          Grandal is a machine. He's made such a difference in this lineup. Does he catch two in a row tomorrow?

            An interesting day for Sox starting pitchers wasn't it?

            It just never ends with this bunch.

            So who comes up when Giolito goes on the IL tomorrow?

            By the way everyone is saying it's a hamstring but if you watched/listened to TLR post comments he said, "Giolito felt something in his knee..."

            Now I'm totally confused (which appears to be my normal state) and even stranger nobody from the media asked a follow up question about the discrepancy.

              According to Gonzo, Giolito told him the injury reminded him of his hamstring injury in 2019 but not as intense, "I can't see being sidelined, it being very long..."

              So where TLR got the part that Gio told him he felt something in his knee...again I'm just confused.

                  There's also the current manager.....or maybe Steve Kemp.

                    Giolito also said this in his post-game interview with the media.

                      I have to wonder if the ground crew in their desire to slow the balls down don't soak it a bit too much. All season, the Sox pitchers have been slipping and their legs going out on bunts and topped balls. Its like their feet go out from under them.

                        There’s an illustration in the link I added to this reply.

                        If the hamstring was pulled slightly, it could be felt toward the bottom of the muscle where its tendons attach to the tibia and fibula, in the knee area.
                        A pulled hamstring or strain is an injury to one or more of the muscles at the back of the thigh. Most hamstring injuries respond well to simple, nonsurgical treatments. Hamstring injuries are common in athletes who participate in sports that require sprinting, such as track, soccer, and basketball.

                          Great job by the bullpen to carry this one across the finish line. Tepera, Kopech, Bummer, "Lazy Trade", and Hendriks combined allowed only 2 hits. I don't care if it's "only Pittsburgh" - a win is a win and that's one more day off the schedule. I'd like to see Vaughn start hitting again. Hopefully Giolito is alright and ready to go before too long.

                          The post-game thread is pretty quiet today.

                            You aren't confused. Tony was. He said "knee," then a reporter asked a follow-up question stating that they had been told "hamstring." Tony responded to the follow-up in an imprecise way suggesting that he wasn't sure if it was "knee" or "hamstring" and settled on "leg." Lucas definitely said "hamstring."

                              Fun game to attend with just a little too much drama with Pittsburgh as an opponent. Giolito had too many control problems early in the game.

                              Plenty of contribution by Leury — a double, a walk, and a sacrifice fly. Now 64 wins in 100 appearances.
