No Hits? No Problem.

In the first round of the playoffs, the Red Sox squared off against the Muckdogs. The Sox won the season series 3-1, but the Muckdogs wouldn't go down without a fight.

Although the Sox did not register a hit, they small-balled their way to three runs by way of walks, errors and stolen bases.

Bret Binder took the mound for the Sox, and has been looking more and more like his pre-surgery self. He pitched a solid 6 innings, while working out of several bases-loaded jams with the help of his defense. Joe Gorman finished off the 7th to earn the save.

Shout out to teammate Fred Kerner for the pictures. He took a bunch, and here's the rest of the album.

The skies opened up after the game, and rained out the subsequent matchups. Because of the rain, the revised playoff schedule has the Sox playing one game on Sunday, at 12:30pm, against the winner of the Colt 45's and Outlaws. It will be a best-of-three series, with Game 2 and 3 (if necessary) played the follow Sunday, on August 21st.

This Sunday's game will be at Plymouth Meeting.
