G37: Red Sox 5, Rangers 2

Red Sox - 310 000 100 - 5  8  0
Rangers - 000 100 100 - 2  7  1

Sunday's afternoon victory in Arlington puts Boston's record at 19-18. It's the first time the Red Sox have been over .500 since April 3, when they were 2-1. They are 2 GB the Orioles.

Work kept me away from all of this one, but the box tells me Lackey (7-7-2-0-9, 105) did well, with Andrew Miller and Koji Uehara (two strikeouts) each pitching an inning of relief. A.J. Pierzynski had a two-run single in the first inning. Dustin Pedroia doubled, homered and scored twice.

Monday is yet another off-day, with a three-game series in Minnesota beginning on Tuesday evening.

What's with the sudden glut of scheduled off-days? This is the third one in the past eight days. They had three for all of April.

They have another one a week from today (19 May), then not until 05 June, then not until 26 June.

I'll never understand what the MLB schedule makers are thinking.

It must be necessary to make the schedule work out, now that some inter-league is year-round. It's like the usual extra April off-days are in May this season.

That stretch you mention from May 20 to June 25 with one off-day is 36 games!

That's also why we have all these two-game "series". It must be a colossal job making the schedule work out so no team is doing weird shit like flying from Boston to Seattle for two games and then back east.
