Red Sox 10 White Sox 1: Pedro Hernandez Has A Debut He'll Never Forget
At least Pedro Hernandez's MLB debut will be one to remember, even if he really wants to forget it.
I can imagine Pedro Hernandez sitting in a therapist's office 40 years from now crying and only able to mumble the phrase "Cody Ross" over and over again, unable to relieve the pain.
Hernandez lasted only 4 innings for the Sox tonight, though he did pitch into the fifth. During those 4+ innings he allowed 12 hits and 8 runs, but only 1 walk. Maybe he should focus on missing the plate a bit more in his next start.
As Christopher Kamka pointed out, it was the worst MLB debut by a White Sox pitcher since the legendary Arnie Munoz allowed 11 runs on 10 hits in 3 innings against the Montreal Expos on June 19, 2004.
So congratulations, Pedro.
