Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia: 'We just got our ass kicked twice'

09 October, 2017, 00:39 | Author: Glenda Knight
  • CINCINNATI OH – SEPTEMBER 23 Eduardo Rodriguez

With a heavy beard and a lot of sweat on a muggy, 77-degree night, Strasburg dialed up his fastball to 97 miles per hour and mixed in an unhittable changeup. Kudos to the Boston hitters, they didn't go down so easy as they made Keuchel work in a few at-bats. "I think it's a tougher job here than maybe anywhere else", Dombrowski said.

The sixth inning, though, is when everything went nuts. That's when everything changed in a matter of minutes. Boston won one, and then the next three. Doug Fister will start game three and was 5-9 with a 4.88 ERA and 83 strikeouts in the regular season.

Sale, who is known to wear down at the end of the year, surrendered seven runs over five innings, and Pomeranz gave up four runs in just two innings. Harper's throw was high, and Bryant went to second. He struck out two and got Boston out of a bases-load jam in the third. The Boston ace pitched five innings but gave up nine hits and seven runs including three home runs. "Like I said, take it off the chin and be back here tomorrow working my (tail) off ready to go".

Hendricks went about things differently - his best fastball is about 10 miles per hour slower than Strasburg's - but was every bit as good.

Boston would be unable to trim the lead down despite getting a couple of two-out hits off of Harris in the eighth before Liriano was brought in to get the last out of the inning.

Meanwhile, his team piled on six runs during that time.

Their undoing in the past has often been poor hitting and bad relief pitching, and it was the former that was most glaring this time. Correa and Springer were a combined 0-for-8 in the opener.

The Astros did score eight runs in Game 1, but a lot of that had to do with Altuve's three home runs.

Now that it's playoff time, Houston is still hammering away.

Nunez hurt himself running to first base and had to be carried from the field in the first inning of an 8-2 loss to Houston on Thursday in Game 1 of the AL Division Series.

Tonight, the Astros will rely on the left arm of Dallas Keuchel to stifle Boston's offense again.

These games have gone so miserably that Craig Kimbrel, the All-Star closer who strikes out almost half of all hitters, was reduced to mop-up duty on Friday, just to stay sharp. "I feel like that will serve us well, much as it's needed". Farrell's Red Sox won the AL East the past two seasons, but a year ago lost eight of their final nine games then were swept three games in the ALDS by the Indians, the team giving Girardi so many problems.

"I would have told them they were insane", Peacock replied when asked what he would have thought if he had been told that in spring training. "Believe it or not I have learned from him".

When you stop laughing, let's take into consideration that he has a career 2.60 ERA in the playoffs. Jackie Bradley Jr. accounted for both Boston RBIs while going 2 for 4 at the dish. Fister has been warming up early to avoid giving up runs in the first inning, which he had done in a six-game streak that snapped in mid-September.

Game one saw the Red Sox struggle to keep Houston out of the run column.

MOOKIE BETTS: Betts is one of the most important players for the Red Sox - they're not going to compete in this series if he doesn't find a way to break out.

For the Yankees to crawl back into this series, they'll need Judge to start putting the ball into play or into the stands. The lefty kept his head down as he trudged toward the dugout after being lifted. The score would stay 2-1 until the top of the fourth when the Red Sox would get runners on the corners with no outs. Josh Reddick also finished 2-for-3 in the game with two runs scored.

Another first-inning outburst could sink the Red Sox.
