Although the fact that the Sox don't have a starter besides Beckett who can get past the fifth inning is a bit worrying, no?
Remember the Sox are the team that makes a habit of digging big holes for themselves in the postseason. See 1999 vs. Cleveland, 2003 vs. Oakland, and 2004 vs. New York. It will be that much more fun when they win the next three and then beat the Rockies.
Although that opposing franchise was known as the California Angels at that time.
As bad as the final score looks, it all comes down to two misplayed balls in the 5th. If either one of them is fielded cleanly the inning ends with Cleveland only scoring 2 runs and the Sox win 3-2. So the message for the Sox tomorrow night? Don't screw up.
The Sox go into the eighth leading 3-2 and Francona puts Gagne in ...
The Red Sox had it in the bag all along.
