Sox get off the schneid

Boston beat Toronto tonight 4-2 on a ninth inning rally to finally get in the win column this year.

Felix Doubront pitched a decent game, allowing 2 runs and striking out 6 through five innings. While technically not a "quality" start, he didn't put the team in the same hole as Beckett or Buchholz did the last two games.

Scott Atchison pitched three scoreless innings to keep the guys in it. And then Alfredo Aceves managed a 1-2-3 ninth to get the win after laboring his last two appearances without recording an out.

I'm still not convinced of this rotation or bullpen, but I'm happy with the win tonight. My prediction is that they're going to move Bard to closer and drop some coin to bring in Roy Oswalt (I think he's still unemployed at the moment) and perhaps bring this kid Cook up from the minors and platoon him with some of the other guys while they figure out if Beckett's going on the d/l and for how long.

Anywho, nice win guys :-)
