He got a fastball low and in. That's a hittable pitch. I'd rather Abreu hunt for pitches there instead of them possibly pitching around him.

I'd rather he got something to pull then - opposite field grounder.

 

But it would have been a hit if it was just a little bit right or left.

I thought this game was over in the 7th, but we made them waste their closer and hit him hard. At the very least it's a nice stepping stone for game 3. This loss is on Keuchel and Madrigal.

So it's all their fault that they couldn't have scored a couple of runs over 7 innings?  It's on all of them.

Madrigal's baserunning was a big reason why we didn't score in the 3rd.

Crazy to think that Renteria has outmanaged Melvin in this series... and Renteria has been bad as it is.

Yeah for real, Melvins moves were suspec as well.

No issues with that swing at the end. That’s a hit 7 times out of 10. He had a lot of success going the other way on pitches low and outside this year.

He should continue with that and start Manaea tomorrow.

Team didn’t look awake until the 7th. Can’t play 6 out of 9 innings like shit in the playoffs. Glad they didn’t just lay down, but let‘s not forget that BOTH Collins AND Dyson got ABs in a playoff game. RICKYYYYYYYYYYYYYYTTTCHSUSJSJoeirufudhwb!!!!!!

It's Madrigal, Keuchel pitched well enough. Between Madrigal's two run error and baserunning miscue, Sox are up 4-3 with Colome pitching the ninth.

I don't think you can risk Eloy in the field so I'm not so concerned about that

I can't believe anyone has an issue with it...

Abreu hit the ball hard and most of the time that would’ve been a hit. Just needed some elevation to it in that situation. The Sox should’ve won that game. Oh well, get back at them tomorrow.

Keuchel still gave up a lot of hard contact. He just wasn't good today. 

 

BTW, Abreu's ground out left the bat at 97 MPH. It had an xBA of .460. Give the A's credit for good positioning. Between that and Moncada getting robbed at the wall, we just didn't have a lot of luck today.

Whatever happens game 3, let’s not be negative during the game. This team can win tomorrow and beat anybody with this offense despite a subpar manager and some stupid mistakes. 
 

Nobody wants to hear that we can’t come back in a game, just look what almost happened vs. arguably the best closer in baseball. 
 

Unless the Sox get blown out, if you’re typing something negative...”stop it, get some help”

 

let’s go Sox!

Jimmy hasn't looked that good all year. Maybe if Ricky didn't run him out everyday, he might be able to hit 100 more often and be more effective.
