Rubby Monday! De La Rosa Tosses Gem #Two

'How 'ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm....?' Indeed! Both Rubby De la Rosa (who tossed a one-hitter tonight through seven innings) and Brandon Workman have got to present GM Ben Cherington with some interesting rotation choices. De La Rosa threw his second straight "gem"—giving up just one single in the third inning and lowering his ERA to 2.84 in the 1-0 win. Boston's feeble offense teased out one run on an sacrifice fly by A. J. Pierzynski (his 30th RBI).  Stephen Drew had two more hits, raising his average to .238. Of course, even with the win, The Carmine Hose are still a pathetic 9-15 in one-run games. But it's a start.
