Game 60: They used it all up last night! 3-2 Rangers
You had a feeling that after a large offensive outburst like last night, tonight would be much more somber. Well, the Red Sox gave John Lackey no support and ended up going 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position to lose the game 3-2. In fact, Boston only managed 5 hits all game. In comparison to last night, Boston recorded six hits in one inning last night. Yikes. Here are the four at bats that changed the game:
Boston would not get any closer, and then end up dropping this game 3-2 to the Rangers. It was not a pretty game, and Lackey deserves better, but it was the kind of game you would expect from two pitchers with very similar ERAs in the high 2's/low 3s.
Tomorrow, the Rangers send Derek Holland to face Jon Lester at 7:10pm in Boston. The winner takes the series.
