Baseball’s Not Fair, Part 343
Alfredo Aceves, the reluctant closer of the Red Sox, picked up his first win of the season tonight when Cody Ross hit a walk-off three run homer in the bottom of the 9th. Not the pitcher who threw eight innings of one-hit ball, nor the guy who single-handedly won the game with one swing of the bat. Nope, Aceves with the win. He gave up 25% of the White Sox’s hits, too.
