Red Sox 0, Rangers 1, End 4: Starters Make Quick Work Of Fourth

C.J. Wilson and Erik Bedard had quick, if not entirely quiet fourth innings, helping out both of their pitch counts.

For Wilson, it was a nine-pitch frame aided by a double play after Dustin Pedroia singled, giving the Sox only their second hit of the game. It’s pretty awful to watch a rare baserunner show up and then immediately be erased like that.

The Rangers got to keep their baserunner—Nelson Cruz reached on a swinging bunt to third—but didn’t fair much better for the rest of the frame, as Bedard escaped on just twelve tosses.

The pitchers’ duel is clearly underway, and if it hadn’t been for Doug Eddings, it’d be a scoreless one at that.
