That might have been the quickest rain delay victory ever.......and i like the extra inning rule for the year, its fun for the few games it will affect.

Franmil continues to hit. You can't throw him a fastball in the middle of the zone. In addition to the game-tying double in the gap he also lined out to center. Zimmer, however, can't hit a high fastball to save his life. Three K's and a HBP. Giolito was just throwing 93 mph fastballs past him. I thought the new stance was supposed to fix that.

Bieber did not have his A game but it was good enough as Freeman came through with the game-winning hit.

What's with bringing in Maton to pitch the bottom of the 9th with the score tied against the Sox 3-4-5 hitters? Didn't see that coming. He got the job done, though. That hook was nasty. He can make a living with that pitch while sprinkling in just enough fastballs to keep them honest.

Great to see them scratch out two runs against Giolito. Now for a well-deserved day off.

Most impressive win so far of the season. And the most fun game to watch as well.
