Here’s one you don’t read often; Pedro Martinez got bombed and by the time the top of the 4th was over his day was done and the Sox were down 9-5.
This was his first start after his brilliant All-Star Game appearance, right? IIRC they shut him down for a couple weeks after this, then babied him for a few starts, and they lost a few games in the standings in the meantime. I recall a lot of dire thoughts in that span. But later that season was the one-hitter at Yankee Stadium, and of course ALDS Game 5.

Jose, why do you hate Morgan Magic? Were you a surly teen in '88 that was too cool for square old baseball?

I adore Morgan Magic. I’m just trying to mix it up. I guess the Benzinger game could’ve gone in over the Marlin game (#92). It’s tricky, I’m doing this by eyeball, I grab all Sox games for each number from 1980-2019 and try to see what jumps out. Some of them I remember for whatever reason, I try to click on close games (particularly home games that might be walkoffs), check on any big run games or 1-0 type games and any time I see an interesting name in the win column I check that.

Oh, I was at the Benzinger game...as much fun as I've ever had attending any live event!
