The Chinese Evil Dead finished 11-13 in April. The hit .271, and ERA of 5.12. Ewing coached them to a 9-3 road record, but the opponents beat them for a 2-10 record.....what the heck...
Delmon Young is the April player of the month: he hit .345 (29-84) with 7 Dbls and 6 Hrs.
Dan Haren is the Pitcher of the month: 4-2, 2.55 ERA, 3 CGs and 1 shutOut.
Rookie Dustin Pedroia hit only .191, and Andy Sonnanstine pitched a 0-2, 8.02 era to win the Goat Awards.
Manager Mark Ewing is happy about the progress of the Evil Dead. "I really see a difference this year, especially in the hitting, Hermida, Delmon Young, Victorino, Morneau are coming through consistently with timely hits all the time, we have never had this before." Ewing knows the pitching is still a step behind. "Kyle Davies, Scott Baker and Andy Sonnanstine have been bad, and my relief has been terrible as well. We will keep plugging away, but I need my guys to learn and get ready for next year."
