Alfredo Aceves gave up eight runs in three and a third innings while walking four. So I’m sure this comment about Bartolo Colon getting calls he didn’t get and the Sox’ lack of offense was well-received by his teammates:
“Maybe his strike zone is not that small, for whatever reason,” Aceves said. “Also, we got our hacks. Why don’t we hit?”
Last night was probably his last start as John Lackey is poised to come off the disabled list. I’m struggling to think of anyone who might have a particular problem with that.
