It’s Simple, Kill the Batman

Song of the Post: Carolina by Parmalee

Well, so much for figuring out Wacha tonight. The Red Sox lost 4-2 to the Cardinals in game 2 of the World Series. Game one featured hits, fielding errors and a dominant pitching performance.

Tonight had two masterful pitching performances and one fielding error that cost the game. Hard to say that it didn’t cause the loss because the Red Sox were shutdown from then on. Breslow committed the biggest baseball crime there is, throwing it around. Coaches yell and yell and yell some more when little leaguers on up throw the ball away. All it does is cost runs.

Wacha pitched beautifully except for one hiccup, the Papi homerun. The Cardinals played a Cardinal type game, it played exactly to their strengths, pitching, key hits, and baserunning and then the bullpen magic.

The Red Sox will need to jump on the 3 and 4 starters in St. Louis in hopes to get the clinching game in Lester’s hand. However, Boston’s two pitchers have big questions swirling around them. Can Peavy pitch better than he did in Detroit? Can Buchholz pitch at all? How can the bullpen respond if called upon early?

Many questions loom, and we will have to wait one whole night to find out.

So like the title; its simple, don’t let their bullpen win the game, beat the starter.
