It’s almost like a flashback watching these Red Sox. They really are like the Yankee teams of the ’90s–they just find a way to win. The Rays had their chances last night–bases loaded in the first, first and third no out in the seventh, first and second nobody out in the eighth–but the Sox set them down. Need a double play ball, bingo, you got it. Need a hitter to swing 3-0 and pop out, boom, it’s done.
And the Sox take Game 1, 2-0. Nice, tidy, efficient. Somebody is going to have to beat the defending World Champs, cause they sure don’t beat themselves.
