ALCS Game 2: Relief

Posted by disappointmentzone on 14 October 2007

All the credit in the world is not enough for the job Rafael Betancourt and Tom Mastny did against Boston in Game 2 of the ALCS. The Youkalis at bat in the ninth was tremendous and Mastny shutting down the heart of the order 1-2-3 in the bottom of the 10th was even more clutch. Seriously, did anyone have hope after the Indians failed to score in the top of the 10th knowing that Betancourt was done and Ortiz, Ramirez, and Lowell were coming to the plate? Turns out the key to shutting those guys down is to throw strikes. Who woulda thought?
