In response to RSPCB73's comment:
Peavy was way off. Given his history against Detroit hitters, Farrell should have been quicker with the hook, and done a Maddon - 1 to 2 innings each from Workman, Dempster, Doubront and Morales before turning it over to the Samurai Warriors!
Also, he needed to get Boggy sooner into the game to replace either of Drew and Middlebrooks who have between them 2 hits in the series! Lineup change coming for Boston tonight. Go Sox!
Red Sox in 2013 World Series; Patriots in 2014 Super Bowl!
You are correct. When Austin Jackson, who entered batting .091 in the postseason, didn’t have to swing during a four-pitch walk that made it 1-0, Peavy should have been pulled. Maddon pulled Hellickson with the bases jamned & no outs & I think we scored no runs.
Getting no hits last night not the problem...we got as much as the first 3 games, 12, and Games 1, 2 & 3 we got 1, 7 and 4 hits. Problem was lack of a key hit and men LOB. You are correct about Drew & Middy and I think Napoli, like a blind chipmunk finds an acorn occasionally hit the HR---it was a fluke...and he has more strike outs than contact with the ball, hits or outs. And Salty is close behind in the strike out category. Other than that I hope Lester pitches well because we can't go back to Fenway needing to beat both Scherzer & Verlander.
