Eduardo Rodriguez got the call of his life, he would be starting his 1st Major League game for the Boston Red Sox vs the Texas Rangers on Thursday night. Of course he must have envisioned how his 1st professional start would turn out for him, but did HE even expect it to go THIS well?
Rodrigues 7.2 innings on Thursday night, giving up only 3 hits, 2 walks and striking out an astonishing 7 batters – one being one of the hottest hitters in the majors right now, Prince Fielder.
I don’t even think Farell expected it to go this great either.
As a Sox fan, Im thrilled to see a young arm do so great. He seems that he has the potential to be an incredible asset to the team.
Great job Rodriguez!
