Gresh & Zo break down Boston’s Game 3 loss in the ALDS against the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Red Sox jumped out to early lead and were able to add on a few more a few innings later, but the Rays tied it up in the bottom half of the fifth and went ahead by one in the eighth.
Boston made up the run to tie it all up at four apiece, but Rays backup catcher Jose Lobaton hit a solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to give his team the win.
With the Rays on the brink of elimination, was the Red Sox loss a result of questionable managerial decisions or overall lack of execution?
Would you have had Clay Buchholz pitching to Evan Longoria with two on and two outs and first base open? Do you agree with John Farrell’s decision to have Quintin Berry pinch run for David Ortiz in the eighth inning?
