Hector Velazquez clearly wasn't the answer Sunday night, allowing three 12th-inning runs as the Dodgers beat the Red Sox 7-4 at Fenway Park.
Velazquez's line was pretty ugly - three runs on two hits and an equal number of walks, with an interference error thrown in for good measure.
It didn't help that David Price put his playmates in an early 3-0 hole by giving up a three-run blast to A.J. Pollock in the top of the first inning. Boston closed to within one in the bottom of the inning and then after Los Angeles scored another run in the top of the fifth, the Red Sox tied the game in the bottom of the eighth on back-to-back home runs by Xander Bogaerts and J.D. Martinez (pictured).
And while he's had a less-than-stellar beginning to his Dodgers career, that was Joe Kelly on the mound in the bottom of the 12th inning striking out two of his former teammates to earn his first save in an enemy uniform.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
