Pathetic, that's the only word I can think of to describe Eric Gagne's perfomance in the opener against the O's. He has been shaky in his first few appearances for the sox, but this was the first time when he just flat out blew it. He gave up 3 runs in 1/3 of an inning before getting pulled for Okajima. Okajima also fell flat and would give up the tie and then the win the following inning. This is possibly the most disappointing loss of the year for the Sox. It should have been an easy win, but Eric Gagne couldn't hang onto a four run lead for more than a third of an inning. Okajima couldn't keep inherited runners from scoring or pitch a scoreless inning to allow the Orioles bullpen a chance to give the sox the game like they always have this year. I'll try to make a more well rounded post about this game later, but I'm too pissed off to think about it too much right now.
