8:15 pm

8:16 pm
the red sox. no action for boston in their bullpen. one out. nobody on. ball one outside to jonny gomes. who hit only .207 this season with the bases empty. if he lights up with runners in scoring position, hit .345. good curveball. strike one. >> tim: he's got a good curveball that he can throw for strikes on a consistent basis. that is a tough, tough curve.
8:17 pm

8:24 pm
division series against oakland. that is right at napoli and lost it and goes to the bag. one out. >> tim: now the decision gets a little tougher for john farrell. off the end of the bat by martinez. good play by napoli. who's really worked hard on his defense. something you could do on the right side of the infield because you don't have to make a throw. unless it's a short throw and this is the right decision john farrell's going to make getting back to that point, joe, about playing this like it's a game seven. that's what farrell's doing. >> joe: this season, including the postseason, he's had one five-out save. that's what he'll be aiming for here tonight. been lights out.

>> joe: taking over here in the eighth coji euhara. he usually throws nothing but strikes. that efficiency that allows him to be in line for saves that last for more than three outs tmpbl. >> tim: that's exactly right. he doesn't know what it means to waste a pitch. >> joe: peralta takes a strike. fastball will maybe touch low
8:28 pm
90s. his out pitch is a splitter that disappears. >> tim: breaks three ways, down, right and left. >> joe: outside. a ball and a strike. aaron charlton with us and gave us the stat of euhara with five four-out saves. one five-out save this season. misses, 2-1. he's no stranger to working more than just the ninth. behind on the count to peralta. and now he's even further behind, 3-1. >> tim: even this is unusual. 3-1 count on an opposing hitter. he had 101 strikeouts this year and 9 walks. >> joe: peralta with six lcs

8:30 pm
that goes down. for it to go to the right which would be to the right in your screen. he drops his hands down. it's almost as though he pushes the ball toward home. >> joe: another foul by peralta. three in a row. >> tim: that's an 89-mile-a-hour fastball and looks faster because the player vs to look for the much slower splitter. >> joe: peralta on 3-2. strikes out! and the splitter got him. two away. we talk so often, tim, about a hitter. we said it about cabrera. he doesn't mind -- doesn't care ll
