Under The Knife: Welcome Back
by

How the Red Sox sent the series back to Boston with a one-win lead.

This series has been compelling from the start, but it took until Game Five for it to look like a contest between two of the best teams in baseball. Game Five was the first without an error. It was mercifully free of egregiously bad baserunning, and it didn’t end with a debatable call. With the memory of Dana DeMuth's floating strike zone still fresh, it felt well-officiated behind home plate, aside from this third-inning strike three to Matt Carpenter.

Putting momentum to the test.

Last night, the Tigers and Red Sox faced off in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series. It was the first meeting between the teams since the Red Sox tied up the series at one game apiece after trailing 5-1 going into the eighth inning. In case your short-term memory isn’t so good lately, that was the game where David Ortiz, a man who has had great troubles in the past during key situations, did this:

The AL's two surviving teams give us a glimpse at the future.

It’s 2033, and baseball has seen better days. What’s good for a team has been harnessed so effectively that it’s become bad for the game.

Zachary Levine

Two home runs by David Ortiz and a pair of late double-play balls helped the Red Sox to a 2-0 series lead.

Sometimes narratives have a way of working themselves out. If David Ortiz’s impressive blast down the right field line had gone foul, it would have been no big deal. The Red Sox were still going to beat the be-Deviled Rays with Koji Uehara coming out for the ninth and we’d probably still be talking about a lot of the same things.

Overthinking It: The Latest Attempts to Beat the Shift

5

Ben Lindbergh

Adam Dunn, David Ortiz, and others are doing their best to make defenders abandon the ever-more-popular over-shift.

A few minutes into the bottom of the first inning of Sunday night’s game between the Red Sox and Yankees, a Dustin Pedroia groundout and a Daniel Nava double brought up David Ortiz.

“He’s made a concerted effort to hit the ball the other way a lot more this season, that’s why the average is so high,” said ESPN’s Dan Shulman. Before he could finish the sentence, Ortiz grounded a single to left. “And there he goes,” Shulman said.

What You Need to Know: Rivera's Rare Hiccup

0

Daniel Rathman

Mariano Rivera has blown three straight save opportunities, but the Yankees won their weekend matchup anyway.

The Weekend Takeaway
As former Yankees beat writer Pete Abraham pointed out on Twitter yesterday afternoon, sometimes a series of hiccups can remind us of a player’s greatness. Fortunately for the team Abraham covered before moving to the Boston Globe, Mariano Rivera’s hiccups this weekend merely delayed victories instead of costing them games.

Despite flubbing a save opportunity on August 7 in a one-run contest that the Yankees ultimately dropped to the White Sox, Rivera sported a 1.70 ERA, remarkable for a 43-year-old pitcher in his 18th big-league season. That hiccup was his third blown chance of the year, and heading into Friday’s opener against the Tigers, he still had permitted only two home runs in 42 1/3 innings of work.

What You Need to Know: Running Out of Races

2

Daniel Rathman

Some slim division leads have become more sizeable lately.

The Thursday Takeaway
Fans rooting for maximum entropy in September have suffered blow after blow over the past few weeks, particularly in the National League. The teams currently in first place have won, won, and won some more; those that are now giving chase have suffered setback after setback, leaving them with more ground to gain and less time to do it.

The blows kept raining down on Thursday afternoon—when the Pirates edged the Marlins 5-4—and evening, when the Dodgers downed the Cardinals 5-1.
