True to the 2013 Red Sox, Boston punched their ticket to the ALCS in dramatic fashion. The Rays used nine pitchers in the contest, the Sox staged a seventh-inning rally and Koji Uehara tossed the final four outs of the game to close out the eventful Game 4 at Tropicana Field. Tampa struck first in the fourth inning after David DeJesus‘ single into right field scored Yunel Escobar, but the Sox’ bullpen made sure they didn’t strike again. The Red Sox got on the board with two runs in the seventh inning, with Xander Bogaerts scoring on a wild pitch and Jacoby Ellsbury quickly followed after Shane Victorino hustled out an infield single. The Red Sox added an insurance run in the final inning, but it wasn’t even needed as Uehara pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to finish off their ALDS and finish off the Rays. With Uehara jumping into David Ross‘ arms, the celebration began — and have no fear, Jonny Gomes‘ army helmet made the trip to Florida as well — as the Red Sox celebrated getting one step clo...

Shane Victorino kisses buh-bye to Tampa Bay fans after ALDS clincher

Something tells me the Rays fans at Tropicana Field weren’t exactly very kind to Shane Victorino during Tuesday’s ALDS Game 4, as Victorino had a little message for them as soon as the Sox eliminated Tampa. The post Shane Victorino kisses buh-bye to Tampa Bay fans after ALDS clincher appeared first on The Nosebleeds.

Shane Victorino Shows Tremendous Hustle in Legging Out Game-Winning Infield Single (Video)

Shane Victorino looked like a man who had been beaten up when he sat down to answer questions following Tuesday’s series-clinching victory over the Rays. But despite the physical toll that this season has taken on Victorino, the 32-year-old still had plenty in the tank when it mattered most. Xander Bogaerts had just scored the tying run with two outs in the seventh inning when...

Want or Don’t Want: Jacoby Ellsbury

Jacoby Ellsbury's season isn't finished yet as the Red Sox continue on in the ALCS. He's probably not begun to think a whole lot about his upcoming free agency, but it will be the talk of the offseason. The centerfielder turned 30 on September 11th and will be entering his age 30 season at the tail-end of his prime. I expect Robinson Cano to be re-signed by the Yankees...

Red Sox wait - again - to find out next opponent

Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino will have plenty of time to rest and recover after getting hit by a pitch twice in Game 4 of the AL division series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Victorino was hit on his right arm and another time in the ribs in Boston's clinching 3-1 victory Tuesday. He was hit two other times in the series after leading the AL by taking 18 off his body...

Shane Victorino and Near-Strike Hit-By-Pitches

Something I like to look at after every season is a chart of the locations of all the season’s intentional balls. Intentional balls, of course, are supposed to be super far away from the strike zone, but out of any such group there has to be a pitch that’s closest to being a strike, and for some reason those pitches fascinate me. This project would by no means be timely right...

Was Jacoby Ellsbury tagged out at third?

The Boston Red Sox benefited from a close call in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Tampa Bay Rays that helped them score two extra runs. Jacoby Ellsbury was on second with one out in the top of the fifth when Shane Victorino hit a chopper in the 5-6 hole. Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar […]

ALDS Game 3 Recap: Tampa Bay Rays Force Game 4 Against The Boston Red Sox

Just when it seemed like this series was over, the unlikeliest of players took center stage and swung the momentum of this American League Divisional Series drastically. But even before the Tampa Bay back up catcher, Jose Lobaton, belted a walk off home run to right center filed to give the Rays the victory, things seemed to be taking a different path than that of the first two games...

Boston Native Cobb Looks To Deny Sox Sweep

On October 7th, 1987, Alexander Miller Cobb was born in Boston, Massachusetts—twenty days shy of the one-year anniversary of the Red Sox losing the 1986 World Series. The young right-hander will take to the hill tonight to try to deny the team from his 'birth' city of a 'berth' in the ALCS. Cobb has been the Rays' best pitcher over the last month or so—although...
