- Curtis Granderson got an RBI double
- Nate Robertson pitched two strong innings
- Omar Infante and Dmitri Young got two hits apiece
- Catcher Fernando Rodney collected 3 hits and had 4 RBI. What? It was actually Ivan Rodriguez but the box scores are in spring training mode as well.
- Reggie Taylor put the team out in front to stay with a homerun in the 7th....which reminds us that none of this means very much.
What does matter is that we are one step closer to opening day; one step closer to travelling to ballparks all over New England and perhaps beyond; one step closer to warm summer days, MLB Extra Innings in the evening, games on the radio as I fall asleep at night; one step closer to box scores and stats that count, fantasy baseball and everything else that comes with the greatest game in the world.
