Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, California
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jered Weaver followed in John Lackey's day-old footsteps throughout the night, all the way to his final triumphant walk off the Angel Stadium mound. He even waved his cap at the standing, cheering crowd with nearly the same sweep of his arm.
The offense has let the Red Sox down in their last three postseason games, recording four or fewer hits in each. Here's a list of the longest such streaks in MLB postseason history:
Except for a lingering headache, Francona was mostly recovered from a brutal 24-hour bout of what he suspected was food poisoning. ... Ellsbury's triple snapped an 0-for-24 playof skid for Boston's leadoff hitter.
|4th||V Martinez singled to center, J Ellsbury scored.||1||0|
|4th||K Morales hit sacrifice fly to right, B Abreu scored.||1||1|
|7th||M Izturis singled to center, H Kendrick scored.||1||2|
|7th||E Aybar tripled to deep center, M Izturis and M Napoli scored.||1||4|
