Will Robby Scott stick as the Red Sox’ top lefty?

Robby Scott has been a big part of Boston’s bullpen’s success. I’ll admit, I wasn’t all that high on Robby Scott coming into the season. I thought he should start the year in Triple-A — with the assumption that they weren’t going to cut Fernando Abad loose — and that him being anything more than an up-and-down lefty was indicative of the lack of left-handed relief talent in the organization.

That was fun. The Red Sox got some runs on the board after an extremely frustrating stretch, and while they all came in one frame it was enough. Drew Pomeranz got the start and although he gave up a couple dingers, he was able to limit the damage all night. The Red Sox came to the plate in the bottom of the first already trailing 1-0 (we’ll get to that later). With the way things have been going at the plate over the last few games, it seemed like an insurmountable lead.
