It's almost like a flashback watching these Red Sox. They really are like the Yankee teams of the '90s--they just find a way to win. The Rays had their chances last night--bases loaded in the first, first and third no out in the seventh, first and second nobody out in the eighth--but the Sox set them down. Need a double play ball, bingo, you got it. Need a hitter to swing 3-0 and pop out, boom, it's done.
And the Sox take Game 1, 2-0. Nice, tidy, efficient. Somebody is going to have to beat the defending World Champs, cause they sure don't beat themselves.
