Red Sox 6, Rangers 0, End 5: Texas Settles Down Behind Scott Feldman

There are three reasons to believe that the fifth inning did not actually happen:

  1. Adrian Gonzalez struck out
  2. The Red Sox didn't score
  3. Andrew Miller threw just seven pitches to retire the side.
It seems that Texas has found a stabilizing hand--at least for now--in Scott Feldman, who recorded a relatively quick 1-2-3 inning despite facing the top of the order for Boston. But nobody has anything on Boston's starter right now, who's perhaps trying to give renewed life to the Andrew Miller experiment. Not only did he need just the seven pitches to record three outs, but he even struck out Mike Napoli in the process. It's been an impressive five innings now for Miller, whose pitch count is low having allowed just three baserunners to go with his five strikeouts so far.
