2013 Junior League Division Series: Red Sox @ Rays Game 4

Well, there goes my prediction of Sox in 3. It was a squeaker that shouldn’t have come down to a 2 Out Walk Off Solo Shot by Jose Lobaton. The Rays shouldn’t even have been flirting with extra innings.

The big blow was the Longoria 3 Run Homer in the 5th. Then they got ahead in the 8th, making Morales pay for a Leadoff Walk. The Sox tied it up in the 9th but could have taken the lead with an insurance run if they hadn’t left Ellsbury stranded at 3rd after a spectacular steal with a Carp pinch hit KO. Pinch Hitters never come through, ever.

Tonight Jake Peavy (12 – 5, 4.17 ERA R) takes the field against Jeremy Hellickson (12 – 10, 5.17 ERA R). Now it seems that everyone in Stars Hollow is a rabid Red Sox fan except me and that’s because I’m mostly indifferent to teams that play Rounders instead of Baseball. I would caution my friends not to get too excited about that full point of ERA advantage. Peavy has a __much__ better team behind him and that can make even a bad Pitcher look good.

I confidently predict we shall visit the Green Monster and worship the Great God Citgo again, the only question is whether it will be Thursday @ 5:30 pm ET or in the League Championship.
