Rays vs Red Sox: Game 5

As a Blue Jays fan, there are truly no winners here. But, in a statistically true sense, I guess the Rays ended up winning this match. The heart of the lineup went 0-4, but Yunel Escobar, Jose Molina and Luke Scott all had 2 hits and an RBI. Jennings also had 2 doubles, a single and stolen base. Matt Moore also redeemed himself by pitching a complete game, 4 hit, 8 K shutout.

The Red Sox lost a pivotal elimination game at home, which doesn’t seem right when you look at it on paper. Pedroia’s 2 hits, Gomes’ 1 and Will Middlebrooks‘ 1 were all that the Fenway faithful were privy to. Jon Lester failed to come close to his game 1 performance, lasting 5 innings, giving up 7 hits, 3 ER, a walk and 5 K’s. I’d like to think it was because of bad managing by John Farrell, but it doesn’t seem to be the case. Damn.
