Sox step up the pitching for Game 4
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The Sox received contributions from the entire roster during Game 4, which included one Sox starter called on to do something he hasn't done in nearly a decade.
For the first time ever in a World Series game, closer Koji Uehara records the final out on a pick off.
“It was fantastic. Just made up for the day before, it was great,” said Rick Tashman, Red Sox fan.
“It was great when see the pitcher go like this and they hug each other and I loved it,” said Dolores Spencer, Red Sox fan.
Once again, the Sox bullpen was solid and secured the win.
“Thought they were great. That won the game. The difference between the bullpen and St. Louis,” Tashman said.
A combination of four relievers picked up for an injured Clay Buchholz, who lasted only four innings, but allowed only three hits.
“It was a gritty performance and I gotta hand it to him, he said I'll pitch as long as I can, if Farrell wants me out, I'll go out,” said Carl Johnson, Red Sox fan.
Even John Lackey's number was called. He came in and pitched perfect in the eighth inning to keep the two-run cushion.
“I thought that was great that he could come in and pitch and hopefully we'll see him in Game 6,” Johnson said.
Then of course, Koji remained dominant, with Sox fans still gloating over his performance Sunday night.
“Ah oh I love him. I hope to see him again, but in a way I don't, but if you can save the game, go ahead,” said Spencer.
