Red Sox In Deep Hole Heading Back To Fenway
The Boston Red Sox find themselves in an 0-2 hole heading back to the friendly confines of Fenway Park. The local nine will hope that the home-town advantage will help them bounce back in this best-of-five game series with a win on Sunday.
The Red Sox will rely on the arm of postseason rookie, Clay Buchholz, who has grabbed firm control of the number three spot in the Sox starting rotation. However, Game 3 may not entirely rely upon the number three starter. Boston’s offense has managed a meager eight hits in two games with just one run to show for it. Plain and simple, the Red Sox offense needs to show up in Game 3 if they want to play anymore baseball in 2009.
Victor Martinez will most likely catch Buchholz in Game 3, giving the Sox their “best” offensively lineup with J.D. Drew batting eighth. So how come the Sox can’t hit this October? That’s for Dave Magadan to find out, but lets hope he finds a solution sooner rather than later before all of Red Sox nation is forced to change its attention to the Patriots and Celtics.
