Felix Doubront tallied his first win of the season Saturday night against the Astros, but it didn’t come easy.
The lefty threw 31 pitches in the first inning, hitting Brandon Barnes, throwing a number of wild pitches and walking two others in the inning. Out of those 31 pitches, just 14 were strikes. The Sox came up to bat in the first inning already down 2-0.
Doubront was able to correct his errors, though, focusing on the strike zone and getting quick outs. His resilience was apparent, as he pitched into the seventh inning and the Sox clinched an 8-4 win over the Astros.
