The Red Sox have won 10 games in October. Gotta grab one more win before you get the brass ring.
To be so close and still so far away, with how incredible this season has been. It’s overwhelming.
This will not be easy. Rookie Michael Wacha has had perhaps the best postseason of any starting pitcher in 2013 (minus maybe maligned Verlander who gave up 1 run in 3 starts), and allowed only a 2-run shot by David Ortiz over 6 in his last outing. He also held the Pirates to 1 run at PNC Park in a must-win Game 4. But the Red Sox have won games started by Moore, Price, Scherzer (twice), Sanchez, Verlander, and Wainwright (twice) this October. There’s absolutely no reason the offense can’t have one good showing at Fenway Park against a great pitcher, and no reason that Lackey can’t hold ‘em to a run or two over 7.
So hopefully tonight the Red Sox rock you tonight. Comment away.
