Our 4th pitcher is just better than Boston's 4th pitcher. The 2 mistakes by Pedroia turned out to be big. The highlight of the game for me was the inning where Iglesias made the great catch in shallow LF and almost turned the DP. Then Miggy bare hands a slow grounder and uses his cannon arm to beat the runner by a hair. Hopefully this is a sign that he's getting better physically. Boston now has to beat us in 2 out of 3 with Sanchez/Scherzer/Verlander coming at them. We have the starting pitching advantage, they have the bullpen advantage, the hitting seems to be slightly in our favor, but they have home field advantage back. It's a real series.
