Red Sox in sweep position today
On Saturday night, the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-4 in Game 2 at Fenway Park to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series.
“Do I like our position?” Red Sox manager John Farrell said, repeating a question. “Better than 0-2. Yes.”
Joe Maddon remains the eternal optimist, even with his Tampa Bay Rays on the brink of elimination in their American League Division Series.
Cobb threw 6 2/3 shutout innings in the Rays’ win at Cleveland on Wednesday night in the AL wild card game but was 0-1 with a 5.16 ERA in four regular-season starts against the Red Sox. On the other hand, Buchholz won both his starts against the Rays, pitching 13 scoreless innings and allowing five hits.
“Facing good pitching like that we need to execute,” Ortiz said. “You got to make up your mind.”
