Ace in the hole

So the game came as advertised:

Young pitching phenom tosses one-hitter in first Fenway game.

Unfortunately for the Sox, the young pitching phenom was Felix Hernandez.

There's not much analysis to be done of a game like that. There's no wringing of hands over missed opportunities, because there were no opportunities to be missed. The Sox were purely and simply shut down by a tremendous pitching performance. Tip your cap to King Felix and move on to today's game.
